    Was marked 'F-16C No 1' on delivery. F-16C 83-1118 was also marked 'F-16C No 1' on the fuselage but that was the first production F-16C. This F-16 83-1121 was the first F-16 delivered to an operational unit. The aircraft quickly went to the paint barn to get 312th TFTS commander markings added, but the 'F-16C No 1' remained for a while.
