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.

Lockheed Martin F-16D Barak 074 was produced in 1988 with U.S. serial 88-1716 and Israeli 074. The aircraft was obtain under FMS Program Peace Marble II and received by the IDF 101 Squadron “First Squadron” and in July 1991 was transferred to the 109 Squadron “Sun Valley Squadron”. During the 2006 Lebanon War or July War as it is known in Lebanon that lasted from July 12 to August 14, 2006 Israeli F-16C 364 and F-16D 074 shot down two or three Hezbollah-operated UAVs using Python-5 missiles.
