Looking on F-16.net, there is only one USAF
F-16 with a serial ending in 605, that being 80-0605
. The information on F-16.net, however, says:
02 Jul 1996: The aircraft crashed on the runway. It suffered fuselage damage from skidding 3,000 feet down the runway. Repaired for display at Great Falls, then transferred to Fargo/Hector IAP in August 1998 for display marked '82-1012'
There are photos of "82-1012" on display in the air park at FAR
(I won't post a link, because it may or may not be deleted) however, the real 82-1012 was sent to AMARC in 2006.
There is another F-16 stored at FAR
. The page for that airframe says:
This aircraft was scrambled from Langley AFB, Virginia to give air cover over Washington DC on September 11, 2001.
Nov 2005: Grounded due to a fuel shelf crack that engineers determined without ever even seeing the aircraft.
Dec 2006: Being prepared for display at the museum at the 119th FW at Fargo, North Dakota.
F-16.net has a story
about the F-16s that scrambled on September 11, including details about retiring two of them to museums. But to further muddy the waters, airport-data.com has two photos of 82-0926, taken in 2008, restored and on display in the air park at FAR
As I said, interesting...
