Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon #85-1479 was assigned to the 86th TFW in February 1987. In June 1988 the aircraft was assigned to the 527th AS (Aggressor Squadron) at RAF Bentwaters in England as an aggressor aircraft, marked with a 01. In February 1990 it was re-assigned to the 512th TFS (re-designated the 512th FS on October 1, 1991). In March 1993 #85-1479 was assigned to the 706th FS and three years later it was sent to the 457th FS.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine fighter aircraft built by General Dynamics, that later became Lockheed Martin. Originally designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multi-role aircraft that can perform various kinds of missions. First flown on January 20, 1974, the F-16 entered operational service with the USAF in January of 1979. It has an internal M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon and multiple locations for mounting missiles, bombs and other mission equipment. Although it is no longer being purchased by the USAF, improved versions of the F-16 are still being produced for export customers. Over 4,500 F-16s have been built for the U.S. Air Force and the air forces of twenty-five other nations.
