F-16A Block 1
This F-16 was the first to roll off the General Dynamics production line at Fort Worth, TX. It was delivered to the USAF in August of 1978 and thus became the very first production F-16 to be delivered worldwide. Initial deliveries went to the 388th TFW at Hill AFB, where initial pilot training on the type was performed.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Owl"

I was an A-6 guy and liked hunting at night. In addition I had the collateral duty of Education Services Officer in my squadron, which reinforced the "wise" (some would say, "wise-ass") image.
