Summary: This aircraft has delta wings blended with the fuselage to increase stability. It is very durable, with 8,000 hours of airframe usage before replacement. It is built very solidly for maximum stability and rigidity. The wings join to increase lift. The wings are also deeply rooted in the fuselage to further increase the stability. This also saves about 250lb in weight.
History: It's first test as a prototype was in 1972. It was later redesigned and retested in 1974 and in 1975, when it was selected for full scale development. By 1993 it had 5 million total flying hours. Several thousand of these craft have been ordered and built in the US and sold to its allies. It is expected to remain in production until 2005-2010.
