War Bird
USAF #81679
F-16A Block 15
The only F-16 from the Thunderbirds ever to be made combat ready. The Tbirds are required to be able to make their F-16s combat ready within 72 hours. In 1988, this was put to the test. The ground crew pulled it off with time to spare, except for the paint scheme. The jet flew a combat training sortie and afterwards received the nickname 'War Bird'.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Rudderbutt"

After trying to fly a biplane by the rudder and not using the ailerons. Quite funny when you consider I had never flown a plane before . They were going to call me crabby because of the way the plane was flown sideways and I said well it workes on the ground why not in the air.
