Scoobee, and the 301st Fighter wings 457th Fighter Squadron "Spads" out of NAS Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth, Texas has been chosen to be the Unit in charge of Representing the Air Force Reserves, they will be working with the Viper Demo Team out of Shaw AFB South Carolina to not only learn the Demo but give the Pilot Captain Jacob "Mustang' Thomas a chance to get familiar with the Viper his Dad worked on. F-16C Block 30 Tail Code 85-449 has been in the Boneyard for 7 years and was Slated to be converted into a QF-16 Targeting drone but thanks to the efforts of Captain Thomas and MSGT(Ret.) Jack Thomas Jr it was sent back to the 457th after being refurbished and Repaired after sitting in the Boneyard for 7 years to fly as the Demo Jet.
