53-3265 was sold in the civil market in 1975 becoming N2907F.The addition of 0- to the painted serial flagged the aircraft as more than 10 years old to avoid confusion with serial 63-3265 (a Bullpup missile!). The frantic development of new military aircraft is now a thing of the past and the practice of adding 0- to USAF serials has ended too.
