First jet I was assigned to. My supervisor, TSgt Phelps pulled me aside after roll call one morning and said "See that jet? That is yours. It is the next CANN jet." My response was "What's a CANN jet?" I found out soon enough.

She's a good jet. Right now is the flagship. Good ole pride of the fleet haha. I spent many of times cleaning her. We also had 30 + days of code 1's from around Feb after we fixed those JFS problems

Errors and Omissions

Likely not aa drone

The aircraft at Tyndall is likely not 84-1222. I looked at the jet and the airframe is not 84-1222, but the vertical tail is marked as 84-1222. There is a very high possibility that the vertical tail was cannibalized from 84-1222 at AMARG before flying it out to get the QF-16 modification without repainting the tail number. The jet on the ramp at Tyndall has all 61st Topdog markings, and I know for certain that 84-1222 was never in the 61st, only the 62nd Spikes. Pretty cool to see it though.
