The Thunderbirds Aerobatic Team began using the F-16 in 1983. Their main aircraft was the F-16A Block 15 and 2 training F-16B Block 15 until the end of 1991 when they transitioned to the newer F-16C/D Block 32. These F-16C/Ds were manufactured in 1986 and 1987 and were some of the oldest operational F-16s in the USAF when they were retired in 2008. For the 2009 show season the Thunderbirds transitioned to 9 updated F-16Cs Block 52 and 3 F-16Ds Block 52.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".

Lockheed F-16C 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.

JC's 1:72 scale F-16 is constructed of solid diecast metal. Very few plastic parts are used, yet the finer points—detailed landing gear, engine exhaust, cockpit interior and panel lines and rivet details—are reminiscent of those usually only found on plastic models. Even subtle details have been included, such as radar warning antenna "beer cans," static discharge wicks and angle of attack vanes. This model, available as either a single-seat C variant or a two-seat D variant, is highly configurable, with movable stabilators, positionable rudder, a hinged canopy with extending and retracting actuator and a variety of different weapons configurations.
