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.
“Tiger Meet of the Americas” was designed to operate like the “NATO Tiger Meet”, bringing various squadrons together for a chance to showcase differing fighter tactics through war games as well as to promote teamwork and cooperation to prepare for overseas deployment. The first “TMOTA” took place at AFB, Colorado between 2001 and is held every other year. In 2005 the meet took place at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho hosted by the 391st “Bold Tigers” FS with the Colorado ANG as the overall winner.
