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-16A Block 15 TS-1608 serial 08 c/n 1A-4, U.S. serial 87-0716 was the fourth of eight
F-16A’s delivered to the Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Udara (Indonesian Air Force)
between 1989-1990. When the aircraft arrived at the Madiun-Iswahyudi Air Base in April 1990 it
was first assigned to the Elang Biru Demo team that had formed in 1995 and disbanded in 2000.
TS-1608 was then transferred to Skadron Udara 3 (3rd Squadron) "Sarang Naga" ("Dragon's
Nest). F-16A #TS-1608 was the first TNI-AU F-16 to wear the grey-green "millennium" color
scheme.
