Special characteristics:

Deployment: Desert Storm

Flew 46 missions in Desert Storm. Nose art is woman riding bomb. When the 363rd TFW returned home from Desert Storm in March of 1991 four aircraft kept their nose art for the Shaw AFB open house. The other three aircraft were with nose art: "Desert Shield", "Sweet . . . But "Deadly" and "Code One Candy" which Warren Trask touched up before the show. All nose art but "Hammer Time" was removed right after the air show and it survived into the next unit which attempted to preserve it. The art was of a 363SPS (Security Police Squadron) lady name Jennifer Krentz.

My second jet as an ADCC. It's the first F-16 I saw with chromed parts, I guess this is where the addiction started. Rudy Ramirez was my DCC; I don't think I ever saw him without that trademark grin!
