On November 9, 2006 the first of forty eight Polish F-16s was flown to the 31st Tactical Air Base located at Krzesiny just outside Poznan. The 31st TAB has thirty two F-16s that equip the 3rd and 6th Fighter Squadrons. The other sixteen F-16s are located at the 32nd TAB in Lask equipping the 10th Fighter Squadron. The Polish Air Force called the F-16 "Jastrzab" Northern Goshawk. Because of the new F-16s capabilities versus their older Soviet aircraft pilots had to learn new tactics that were similar to Western tactics.

Lockheed F-16D Fighting Falcon

Designed by General Dynamics as a lightweight, daytime USAF air-combat fighter, the F-16 was first flown on January 20th, 1974. This single-engine, supersonic aircraft has, over the years, evolved into a multirole aircraft. It has a frameless bubble canopy—giving its pilot superior visibility—and it uses advanced aerodynamics. The F-16 was one of the first designs to use a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire system, which helps it pull 9-g maneuvers and achieve speeds of more than Mach 2. Called "Viper" by its pilots, the F-16 is considered one of the most successful aircraft designs of the Cold War, with 4,400+ aircraft built since 1976.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-16 is constructed using an intelligent mix of diecast metal and plastic, which allows for the greatest possible detail. Among this model's most remarkable features are an articulating hinged opening canopy that closes with almost no visible gap and landing gear that has been constructed as subassemblies for easy configuration. It also includes a large number of pad-printed flight instruments and a rudder and engine intake that are accurately replicated in plastic. The models in this series cover early variants to the most advanced later variants featuring conformal fuel tanks as well as both single and two seat variants.
