While a large portion of the Air Force mission has evolved to meet critical mission requirements such as close air support and combat search and rescue, fliers cannot afford to lose their intercept and air-to-air combat skills. The F-16 has proven itself as a highly maneuverable, low-cost and multi-mission capable weapons platform since it was added to the Air Force inventory in 1979.
