637 was already an ADF jet when this shot was snapped. The B models got the airborne ID light but not the AIFF Bird Slicers or distinctive blister at the base of the tail that the A's did.

I was also part of this ground crew for the post phase run, and can say without a doubt that ssgt lopez did nothing wrong! In fact he practiced some very quick decision making in that he engages nosewheel steering and avoided running into the A10 hangars that neighbor nose dock 7 at eielson. People need to get there facts straight before acting like they know anything. If you don't believe that I was there, check the records, SrA Scott Fronek.

Looks great - always try to catch a glance when I'm driving past it on Mopac.

Hey, Blessed Homemaker. Don't worry about leaving cnmoemts! Silly you! But I really appreciate your kind thoughts and encouragement, which have made my day. I continue writing this blog for my love of cooking, baking, and writing--it's got nothing to do with getting the most cnmoemts, or whatever. =)You take care, too. Okay? May you have a lovely one ahead! =)-- Pei-Lin

Chris wrote that post! He interrupted my four part sereis on OSM just to announce the culmination of his epic battle to make in-app purchase work on Android. Can you believe the guy?

"Verticular" stabilizer? Believe you mean "vertical" stabilizer.
550 was one of the first jets fitted with the F-16C enlarged dorsal fin, in advance of the F-16C being fielded. This was probably to test the ALQ-165 ASPJ ECM system, which at the time was still slated for the F-16C, and was to be housed in the dorsal fin.

12AF CC's jet?
The old superscale decal sheet depicted this jet as wearing the 12th Air Force badge instead of the TAC badge, suggesting it was assigned as the 12th AF commander's jet.

I was assistant Crew Chief on this jet when it first came into service at Homestead AFB - 308th Emerald Knights Fighter Squadron. Smelled like a new car. We received these Block 40s to replace our old Block 16s. Sure did like this jet - sad to hear it crashed years later.

I was a crew chief on this jet in 1989 at Hahn A.B. Germany. It was one of the best jets of the 313th Lucky Puppies. Of course like all jets it shared that spot light on and off with a couple of others in our squadron. I miss those days. Email me at email@example.com if you want.

474th TFW tailcode "NA" may have been incorrectly applied instead of the 57th FWW's "WA". The 474th TFW never operated any Block 15's, only Block 10's.
