Notes:

This circular, embroidered badge shows the YF-16 in its distinctive red white and blue colour scheme these colours also being those of the State of Texas where General Dynamics is located. The production line for the F-16 was sold to Lockheed Martin in 1993. The stars around the Badge again reflect that of Texas. The Museum has two of these Badges which were typically given to aircrew, visitors to GD and at Air Shows.
