This is a recreation of the IAF F16A Netz number 243 of the 140 squadron, "Golden Eagle" ( which now operates the F35I "Adir" ).
it was first received by the 110 "knights of the north" squadron in february 1981 and was flown by the late Col. ilan ramon in the osirak nuclear reactor strike in iraq, 7th of june 1981.
in 9th of june 1982, during the First Lebanon war, Maj. Avishai Knahan shot down a syrian mig 21 over lebanon with it.
in 1986, with the 110th squadron upgrade to the C model, it was reallocated to the 140 "golden eagle" squadron.
in 2013 it was reallocated yet again over to the 116th, defenders of the south (also "flying wing") squadron.
hey folks, hope you enjoy this recreation of the netz number 243
it is the plane flown by the late colonel Ilan ramon during the osirak nuclear reactor strike.
at the time he was the youngest pilot in the formation (at the rank of captain) and therefore was given the #4 position in the strike.
he would later become the first israeli astronaut. but unfortunately died along with other 6 crew members during re-entry in the fatal crash of the Columbia Space Shuttle in February 1st 2003.
