The F-16 was the result of a request by the US Air Force for a light-weight, low-cost, high-performance aircraft. This General Dynamics built F-16A aircraft was flown by two Selfridge units, the 191st FIG from 1990-1994 and the 127th FW from 1990 to 2009. In 1994 the 191st FIG converted to C-130s Hercules and the 107th Tactical Fighter Wing, under the 127th Wing Group converted to F-16 C and D models. In 2009, the 127th FW converted to the A-10 Thunderbolt II.
