It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Wild Weasel

The 20th Fighter Wing flagship F-16CM Fighting Falcon is parked on taxiway echo on the flightline at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., June 4, 2015. The tail of the fighter jet was recently painted to commemorate 50 years of the iconic Wild Weasel mission. The Wild Weasel concept was developed by the United States Air Force in 1965, after the introduction of Soviet Surface to Air Missiles and the downing of U.S. strike aircraft over the skies of North Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, the Soviet SA-2 SAM threatened to halt air operations over North Vietnam. To suppress and destroy this threat, the U.S. Air Force countered with the courage and skill of the Wild Weasels, pilots flew some of the most dangerous missions in Southeast Asia. Fighter pilots are still using the aggressive Wild Weasel tactics in today’s air war, carrying out the legacy of the Wild Weasel in campaigns around the world. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
