F-16D #86-0375 is painted in the striking "Arctic Flanker" scheme, simulating that of present day Russian Su-27 Flanker aircraft, including Russian style "Bort" numbers (Red 75) on the sides of the engine intake, while retaining USAF Tailcodes and "Stars-and-Bars".

The US Air Force 18th Pursuit Squadron was activated in February 1940, flying the P-36 Hawk out of Moffet Field, California. The unit relocated to Elmendorf Field, Alaska in February 1941 and was redesignated 18th Fighter Squadron in May 1942. The squadron transitioned through a variety of front-line fighters, including the P-51 Mustang, F-86 Sabre, F-102 Delta Dagger and F-4 Phantom II; stationed at a variety of bases in Alaska. They moved to Eielson AFB in January 1982, flying the A-10 Thunderbolt II, before upgrading to the F-16 Fighting Falcon in 1991. In August 2007, the unit was redesignated 18th Aggressor Squadron in recognition of its current role of simulating foreign air force flying and fighting styles in training missions for USAF pilots.

Lockheed F-16D 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.
