Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon Diecast Model
USAF Thunderbirds, #6

1:200 Scale   Length   Width
Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon   3"   1.75"

With this brilliant fighter, the US-Americans landed an international success. The model will be released in the livery of the “3600th” USAF Air Demonstration Flights”, an aerobatic squadron already established in 1953, which has been based at the Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas since 1956. Since 1992, this aerobatics squadron, internationally renowned as the “Thunderbirds”, has been operating eight F-16Cs. The original of the model carries the registration 6 and flies in a rear position in the squadron.

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.
