In 1994 the 22nd Fighter Squadron moved from Bitburg Air Base, Germany to Spangdahlem Air Base to replace the 480th FS. The 22nd FS acquired the F-16 Fighting Falcons of the 480th FS and at some point #90-0829 became the squadron flagship. In 1998, the primary mission of the 22nd FS was changed from general-purpose air interdiction to a “Wild Weasel” role responsible for the suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD). The 22nd FS remained at Spangdahlem Air Base until 2010 when restructuring de-activated the squadron and re-activated the 480th FS.Opening canopy

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine fighter aircraft built by General Dynamics, that later became Lockheed Martin. Originally developed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multi-role aircraft that can perform various types of missions. First flown on January 20, 1974, the F-16 entered operational service with the U.S. Air Force in 1979. It has an internal M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon and multiple locations for mounting missiles, bombs and other equipment. Although it is no longer being acquired by the USAF, improved versions of the F-16 are still being built for export. Over 4,500 F-16s have been produced for the USAF and the air forces of twenty-five other nations.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
