Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series
Lockheed F-16/101
75-0745, USAF, 19th December 1980
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
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.

General Electric F-101 turbofan engines were developed for the Rockwell B-1A Lancer that was
cancelled in 1977. GE re-engineered the engines for fighter aircraft under the Derivative Fighter
Engine (DFE) program. The new F-101X DFE engine was fitted to the first full-scale development
(FSD) F-16A (75-0745) which was known as F-16/101. This aircraft made 58 test flights during
75 hours flight time before the project was cancelled in 1981. The F101X DFE engine was not
used in F-16s but was used to develop the GE F-110 engine first used in Block 30 aircraft.
