Keep in mind this not the same as TFR and are not related. Two different things.

Did you guys give names to the jets?
I ask because we always did. 2001 was balls one, F-117 808 was bob and so on.
And then there are also the panels, it was never 4305, it was the bath tub. 4409 was the donut, 3308 was the lox panel, etc.
We did name some of them, but only between us conscripts.

658 (80-365 was Bleiebarnet (Diaperchild) or Hangardronninga (Hangar Queen), mostly due to an insane ability to chuck fuel out of the vent-hole under the wing on EVERY goddamn startup for a while before it was taken in for 200-hour maint, or because she spent an insane amount of time in the hangar with minor snags. ECS, Radar, various electrical faults and all the other fun things that comes with the amout of flight-hours she had (4000+).

666 (80-3666) was The Beast for obvious reasons.
279 (78-0279) we called Aircon (ECS-issues on deployment)
659 (80-3659) wasn't named, since that would incur the Wrath of the Crewchief, which wasn't someone you messed with.

There were others as well, but we mostly went with the tailnumber.

Panels were named, yep. Bathtub and LOX we used, but instead of the Donut (which I take is the ring just before the nozzle) we called Fiseringen (basically sphincter). Apart from that, the only other we named was 2408, which was the panel covering the EPU fueltank. We rarely called it that, and usually went by the connector-number which I can't remember from the top of my head.

Quick question for the F16 diehards and experts, can the F16 CJ mount CFT's ?

From what I can tell from the forums over at F-16.net: no. The CJ's pre-Block52+ lacks both the attachments, the wiring and the plumbing needed, plus the structural modifications needed to fly with them.

Mind you, I'm no expert on the later-model Vipers, as I only worked on the AM/BM with the MLU M2-upgrade which is said to bring the cockpit and avionics up on par wit the Block 50/52s. There's been other upgrades since then (think we're at M7 at this point), but just what they entail is unknown to me.

It depends. This has been covered in the forums extensively. This gets ask once a week. I guess people don't like the answer and will continue to ask until they get the answer they want.
