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.
All of the 62 Fighting Falcons operated by the Republic of Singapore are advanced F-
16C/D block 52 aircraft. The first block 50/52 F-16 came off the production line on October
31, 1991. Aircraft 691 was msn 0280, serial 94-0280 and c/n DB-7. Assigned to the 140
Squadron “Osprey” (Motto – Stand Firm in Defence) is based at Tengah Air Base and
wears a red tail band. Block 50/52 has improved engines rated at 29,000 lbs of thrust. Over
25 countries operate the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
