F-16 Information

iNFLIGHT Aviation's F-16 Familiarization Trainer was built in the 80s and was used to train F-16C BLK25 air crews on basic aircraft procedures. After several years of service, the trainer was retired and sold at public auction. Our F-16 Familiarization Trainer was stored for many years until recently, when it was refurbished and painted to replicate aircraft 91-0353, one of the world's most capable F-16C BLK50 multirole fighter flying today.


   77TH FIGHTER SQUADRON "GAMBLERS"

    Aircraft 91-0353 is assigned to the 77th Fighter Squadron (77 FS) that is part of the 20th Fighter Wing at Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina.
    It operates the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft conducting air superiority missions.

   HISTORY
    The squadron is one of the oldest in the United States Air Force, its origins dating to 20 February 1918, being organized at Rich Field, Waco Texas,
    as a pilot training Squadron during World War I. The squadron saw combat during World War II, and in 1994 the squadron started flying F-16C/D
    'Fighting Falcon' at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina. One of the squadron’s mottos is All Aces, No Jokers.

   USAF MIG KILLER
    Aircraft 91-0353 shot down a MiG-29 during Operation Allied Force on May 4th, 1999 and now wears a kill marking located on the left side
    of the fuselage.
    In early 2004 'Let’s Roll' art was added to the aircraft. "Let's Roll" was Flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer's last audible words.
