LAST UPDATED ON FEBRUARY 8TH, 2021.
Over the past years a number of F-16s have found their way into the QF program. We have identified a large portion of those jets, but we still have some gaps. Anyone has some info on the missing jets?

QF-092 82-0997
QF-093 81-0772
QF-094 82-1014
QF-095 82-0913


Furthermore we have these jets as being part of the program, but still not accounted for:
81-0780, 81-0811, 82-0963, 82-1005, 84-1256, 85-1432, 85-1458, 85-1459, 85-1465, 85-1470, 85-1475, 85-1480, 85-1482, 85-1483, 85-1484, 85-1486

So if anyone knows which 'QF' birds they became, that would be great.

Good to see some jets I flew flying again. Sad to know they will eventually get blown up but preferable to rotting away in the desert.

Any reason we could not turn some of them into kamikaze drones?

Found a picture of 85-1458 but cannot identify its QF number. It is QF-07X, but that's as far as I get.

If anyone has some info, that would be great.
