Through continuous upgrades, the F-16 Fighting Falcon has remained a valuable front line asset for 30 years. It was first introduced in the 1970s as a lower cost, light weight alternative to the F-15 Eagle, and soon became the fighter backbone of the US Air Force. Affectionately known as the "Viper" by its pilots, the F-16 has served with distinction in conflicts around the world, most notably in the Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The F-16 features fly-by-wire controls as well as the ability to sustain 9Gs in maneuvers. In this live action portrait, Mark Karvon depicts an F-16 of the 57th FWW out of Nellis AFB. Prints of Mark's original work are available in 2 sizes. Both carry his signature. Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.

Appearing in 1990 as the cover of Air Force Magazine, Falcon Sunrise is available as a fine art print, reproduced on 100 lb. quintessence archival stock. "My goal here was to accurately capture the ambiguities of the ground as it rushed by during a low level attack in the Black Forest of Germany. The most difficult aspect of this painting was researching the instrumentation readouts to reflect this combat situation. If you look carefully at the targeting recticle on the right side of the H.U.D., you can see the tank that this F-16 pilot is targeting." ~Dru Blair, 1990.
