Its pilots call the F-16 a "Fighter pilot's fighter". The most popular multi-role fighter aircraft since 1980, this great aircraft was originally designed as a cheap lightweight companion to the big and expensive F-15. The F-16 evolved greatly since. It is the backbone of many air forces worldwide, and state-of-the-art new F-16 types with ever increased capabilities are still being produced.
