Photo Comment

This F-16 is interesting for at least two reasons. Firstly, it is the Viper that famously crashed at Oshkosh in 2011 after running off the runway. Also, one can see parts reclamation (the 'R' in AMARG) actually taking place as the radome and antennae have been removed and boxed up ready to be reused if/when required. This F-16 was retired to AMARG during July 2012.
