The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then
merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January 1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as the “Viper” and will remain in USAF service until 2025.

F-16C Fighting Falcon “89-2098” MSN 1C-251 was originally assigned to 19th FS “Gamecocks” at Shaw AFB, South Carolina in March 1991 and became the 9th Air Force Commander's jet. Sometime after 2008 89-2098 was upgraded to an F-16CG. In late 1993 the 19th FS was moving to Elmendorf AFB, Alaska and upgrading to F-16 Block 50 so the Block 42 F-16s were sent to the 180th FW/112th FS “Stingers” of the Toledo ANG. The 112th FS is a descendant of the112th Aero Squadron formed on August 18, 1917.
