Does anyone know what tail # this was? Or what unit this ADF came from?

Well, judging by the star on the tail, it's 102 Squadron. 103 Squadron has a lightning bolt.

I guess I should have been more specific, I was wondering what the US tail number was and which US ADF unit it came from.

Figured you knew :-)

Perhaps our back and forth will generate someone to advise of the tail number. I'd like it for historical reasons to update the F-16 database.

It does not look like a write off... or it does?

USAF Serial Number 81-0754, you can look up it's historical information in the database.
The engine auto-accelerated to AB, jumped chocks, pilot ejected and aircraft came to rest in the ditch. It has not been officially written-off yet.
