Product Description

Hobby Master  Lockheed-Martin F-16C Falcon Tail No 85-1479  527th AS  Bentwaters England 1989  1/72 diecast metal and plastic parts. Fully assembled. HA3821

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 F-16C 85-1479 was built as c/n 5C-259 and flew with the 527th Aggressor Squadron based at RAF Bentwaters, England. The unit was re-activated in April 1976 as the 527th Tactical Fighter Training and Aggressor Squadron equipped with the F-5E. In June 1988 the 527th flew its last F-5 sortie and in January 1989 transitioned to the F-16C. By the mid 1990s the 527th had 12 F-16Cs and was the only F-16 unit ever based in the UK. On September 30, 1990 the 527th AS was inactivated.
