On February 28, 1994, Capt. Robert Wright – flying with the 526th TFS "Black Knights" – entered Bosnian airspace during Operation Deny Flight. Spotting a trio of Serbian J-21 Jastrebs, Wright fired two AIM-9Ms and an AIM-120 and took down all three enemy warplanes. His aircraft (nicknamed the "Triple-Jastreb-Killer") was later painted with three green stars to commemorate his achievement.

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.
