    Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA3880 Lockheed F-16C Block 40 88-0428, "South Dakota ANG 70th Anniversary", 2016 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 Block 40 88-0428 MSN 1C-30 was completed in 1989 and assigned to the 4th TFS/388th TFW "Fightin Fujins" and deployed for �ODS�. In 1994 the aircraft was reassigned to the 421st FS �Black Widows. In 2010 88-0428 was transferred to the South Dakota ANG 114th FW / 175th FS �Lobos�. In 2016 to celebrate the South Dakota ANG 70th Anniversary 88-0428 received a special color scheme. September was a busy month for 88-0428 because it was deployed to Lask AB, Poland to take part in a bilateral training exercise �Aviation Detachment 16-4�. True 1/72 scale. Professionally painted.
