My Jets & Assignments

87320 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 170th Fighter Squadron "Fly'N Illini" [Unit History]
Period 1994 - 1996
Current: 87320  USAF 121 FS F-16C Block 30 [act]
I crewed this aircraft while assigned to the 183 FW, Illinois Air National Guard from 1995 to 1996 when I left the unit. In late August 2008, 87-320 came to the 150th FW, New Mexico ANG. I was a member there and got to crew it again a couple of times. What's the odds of that happening?

Period 2009 - 2011
Current: F16C 85-1449  USAF AMARC F-16C Block 30 [sto]
This is the last F-16 I crewed. After our Korea deployment in 2010 I became a flight line supervisor. MSgt Jeff Dorough, who was an ART and the DCC, retired after 30 years of military service. We both will never forget the fuel leak on the left wing tip for as long as we live....LOL!

I was assigned to all aircraft in the 138 FW. I worked Phase Inspection. Whenever we would deploy, I always got this jet to crew when I had to crew a jet. The DCC took excellent care of it.
