    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.

    Romania joined NATO and looked for a replacement that would correspond to other NATO
    equipment. Portugal was willing to sell F-16s that were 30 years old but that had the mid-life
    upgrade (MLU) extending their service by 20 years. The 12 aircraft consisted of 9 F-16AM and 3
    F-16BM. Portugal couldn’t release their own F-16BMs so they purchased 3 from the USAF to
    fulfill their obligation. Romanian F-16BM 1601 originally had a U.S serial of 82-1022 and a
    Portuguese serial 61-615. These aircraft would equip the Forţele Aeriene Române (FAR) 53rd
