My first jet with my name on the gear door. I deployed once with the 34th FS to Prince Sultan AB in Saudi Arabia for a 45-day tour.

This F-16 was not the most reliable and since it was a D model it didn't get to go on some TDYs. I remember it didn't have many code 1s but it flew a lot. "Baby Flex" took over this aircraft from me when I moved on to be an expeditor then I PCSd to Korea in 2011.
