      Vipers escorting their successor. inevitable, but sad with all of the history I have with the Viper. The F-16 will be missed greatly by both those who drove it and wrenched it. she served us well for 35+ years.

      As good as the F-16 is, the F-35 is more versitle. They will be missed greatly.
