Question ID: 703416
I am looking for links to every F-16 Fighter base in the world.
I would also like to have links to every F-16 Squadron on each base.
I am retired US Air Force, RED HORSE and want to try and find some of my buddies.

Request for Question Clarification by techtor-ga on 03 Mar 2006 20:28 PST
Since you're looking for buddies, are you looking only for US F-16
fighter bases? Meaning, I'll exclude bases of F-16s owned by Israel
and other countries. You might say it's obvious, I guess.

Request for Question Clarification by techtor-ga on 04 Mar 2006 03:46 PST
Just an update. I suppose US bases are all that's needed. I've a list
of them, and can determine which carries F-16s, and what squadrons
carry them. But not all bases nor squadrons have a website. Would you
be satisfied with a list of the bases and squadrons, even if they all
have a website? Or do you need contact info for each F-16 unit?

Clarification of Question by g2realtor-ga on 04 Mar 2006 10:08 PST
Hello techtor-ga.  I think... for the moment... we would only be
interested in F-16 fighter bases and squadrons owned and operated by
the US. That said... if you have a thought that we might have US
Pilots deployed in foregin country F-16 fighter bases, it wouldn't
hurt to add them to the list.

As for your question about squadron links, while that is the optimum
preference, if some of the bases do not post their individual
squadrons on their web sites, I can get by with just the base web

Now... all that said... if you can post for me, email or web site
points of contacts for any of the F-16 fighter sqadrons, that is a
plus... but not an absolute need.

Thanks for your help.

Hello again G2realtor,
Thanks for the reply. I'll see what I could come up with on contact
info. By the way, I like your tag line! Very appropriate for an F-16
pilot, makes a statement.

Hi again Techtor,  thanks for the response... BTW... I'm going to up
your payment to $100.  I really appreciate your help... bye for now...
and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi G2realtor,
Hey, very generous of you to raise the "ante." With that though, it
raises doubts if the answer I prepared will be up to that. I listed
the bases in the US and out-of-US permanent deployements that carry
only F-16 units. Unfortunately, not all of them have a working website
to provide contact info of the base. I also listed the F-16 units,
some have websites at Wing level, though none at squadron level
(usually part of the base info as well). Also, only more than half
have contact info for the units, which is usually the contact info for
the base itself. Would this be acceptable to you already as an answer?

Hello again Techtor,

This is a good beginning.  Let's try to work on some particular bases,
but the data you have for now... will help me get started.  In the
mean time... and if you're up to it... let's try to borrough down into
bases in Germany, Korea, Italy, Guam, America of course, Egypt, Saudi
if any, and Japan... whatchya think?  And... no worries on the fee. 
When you feel that I have worn out my contribution, we can talk more
about additional $$s... ;o)

Hi G2realtor,
I have the out-of-US bases websites too, including Korea, Japan, Italy
and Germany. As for other bases on the American continents (like South
America), that's where information is sparse, as mere detachments are
assigned there, I believe. In the middle East, I see Kuwait as the
only location where F-16s have been assigned for the long term, though
they may have been moved. Let me know if we're getting there.

Oh, yes, as a Red Horse member, you were assigned to Nellis AFB, is it
right? So that's where the nice tagline came from...

Request for Question Clarification by techtor-ga on 06 Mar 2006 06:45 PST
Thanks for the bit of trivia. That is interesting history. 
Since you're looking for buddies from the Red Horse Squadron, perhaps
this Red Horse Association website may be of help, if you haven't
found it already.

Red Horse Association website:

Perhaps the Red Horse Squadron is contacted via Nellis AFB, maybe you
should try that avenue.

Hello G2realtor,
Thanks for letting me post the answer. I have this list of US bases
and F-16 units assigned to those bases. I got the web site links of
each base and the Fighter wings, rather than squadrons, as that are
what have websites. Sometimes the fighter wing info can be found in
the main website itself. Unfortunately for a few bases, like Luke and
Hill AFBs, the website info and even contact info were hard to find.
They might need to be contacted using an official Air Force personnel
locator service. The information or website might have been taken down
for security reasons.

I got these listings from this unofficial Military Deployments website:

Hi again Techtor,  You're absolutly on the right track.  I know that
RED HORSE was, and may still be, in Kuwait.  I know they're in Iraq
and Afganistan along with some Prime Beef.

As for my tag line... The RED HORSE moto has always been:
"CAN DO - WILL DO - HAVE DONE"  Our emblem patch, a RED HORSE driving
a D5-CAT with an M-16 over his shoulder (but to be politicaly
correct... the HORSE could be a girl too... LOL) has been the same
emblem patch for as long as I can remember.  A smaller logo-icon is
the chess piece looking HORSE that looks much like the logo on the
calling card of "Paladin", an old west character played by Richard
Boon in the 1950.  Paladin was a gun slinging vigalanti (good guy) who
offered up a business card, sporting the slogan "Have Gun Will Travel"
and the icon/logo of the Knight Chess piece, the same icon/log we have
on our cards and our rings.

Now... the second part of our tag is actuall a paraphrase of an old
Marine phrase, "... if you can't lead, get the hell ouf of the
way...".  I'm not sure, but I think Brig Gen Tom Meredith USAF,
fabricated the tag phrase LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET THE HELL OUT OF THE

Just a bit of trivia for you... ;o)

Thanks again for your help.

And... to MyOarin... thanks for the heads up about the Blog site...
I'll check that out too... later...

bye again to both of you.

Hi again techtor.  Thanks for the RED HORSE web site... but... you are
correct... I already know about that site.  I am already in touch with
RED HORSE to find some of my old RED HORSE buddies... but... I am also
looking for F-16 Fighter Pilot pals as well... present and past.  It's
a two pronged search... your continued assistance is greatly

Well G-II, I have that list of US bases and websites, and other
airbases in foreign countries. As for the Kuwait site, Ahmed Al Jaber
airbase, it's probable that all Red Horse members have come home
already from that site, which is the indication on the Red Horse
Association home page. Maybe a few F-16 pilots have been left. No
website with contact info on the base could be found though. So in
essence, are you giving the go signal for me to post the list I've
gathered? Or is there anything else you need?
