This was the first F-16 I worked on at the Kun. I was the ADCC on days and "G-Man" was the DCC on nights...what a team. It was always broke until I put a lot of time in to it and made it a code #1 flyer. Making it a code #1 flyer earned me a trip to the Phillipines.

Really an awsome jet when I crewed it, awsome squadron, had a blast on the ROK. Juvats rule!
