The 16th Pursuit Squadron (Intercept) was formed in 1940 with 10 more name changes up to 2003. In 1979 the unit was re-established as the 16th TFTS at Hill AFB and deactivated in 1986. In February 2003 the unit was reactivated as the 16th WPS (Weapons School) at Nellis AFB, Nevada with the purpose to train pilots on the operation and tactics of new F-16 Freedom Fighter. In 2015 their mission changed when the first F-35A arrived with an additional six F-35s join the squadron with one being AF 12-5053.

Lockheed F-35A Lightning II JSF

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
