This Lockheed Martin F-16CG Block 40 was the flagship of the 68th Fighter Squadron, 374th Fighter Wing based at Moody Air Force Base Turkey. This squadron flew numerous sorties over the Iraq No Fly Zone while deployed for Operation Southern Watch right after the 1998 Operation Desert Fox bombing campaign. Lt Col Matt Neuenswander commanded the Lightening Lancers for a year and left command right before the 68th was inactivated. This F-16CG is loaded with four GBU-12 500-pound laser-guided bombs, two AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air to Air Missiles, and two AIM-9M Sidewinder heat-seeking missiles. An ALQ-184 short electronic countermeasures or ECM pod hangs from the centerline pylon.
