What was the serial of Scott O'Grady's F-16 that was lost over Bosnia well before the '99 war?

Yes. No other F-16 was lost on the Balkan

It is the F-117 and the O´Grady F-16. A part of a HARM, and some UAVs.

The F-16 remains in the museum is 88-0550. This was an F-16CG that suffered engine problems after a SAM detonated near to it over Serbia, 2 May 1999. The pilot nearly managed to nurse it out into Bosnia. He ejected and was rescued within Serbia by a CSAR team. http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/Images/unit03/f1688550.jpg http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/04/26/shootdown.video/ http://www.1stguns.de/support/f_16_hit_serbia.mp3 http://homepage.ntlworld.com/carl.hender/files/audio/hammer-trans.htm The UAV is a French Crecerelle.

Please get real. The only manned aircraft losses were the F-117A and the F-16CG. No other manned aircraft was lost to enemy action. Why just the Pentagon? Are you aware of how many nations flew manned combat missions over Serbia? Don't fall for the ghost writing propaganda of the then Yugoslav Ministry of Information. They ended up re-writing the combat reports of the 127 lae with claims of air-to-air kills when in fact no Yugoslav pilot made any claims whatsoever. What did they do - secretly re-open the production lines to replace the aircraft lost? TJ

You see the 555 FS on the tail? That's not a serial number but the squadron number. The 555th is O'Grady's unit so that is certainly O'Grady's plane unless the 555 FS lost another (unlikely.) The "Triple Nickel" is actually a very famous formation in the USAF and included ace Robin Olds who had 4 kills in Vietnam (ace status with 12 kills in WWII.)

Correct on the 555 being the squadron number (hence 555 FS). The AV is also the tailcode for Aviano AB in Italy.

Prove it. Without using the following: www.aeronautics.ru

Nope, both F-16s lost by the USAF over former Yugoslavia were with the Triple Nickles. The F-16 wrecked by Scott O'Grady and a SA-6 missile was 89-2032/AV, indeed of the 555FS/31FW. This was during Deny Flight over Bosnia. The tail on display in the Belgrade museum is that of 88-0550/AV which was shot down during Allied Force.

O'Grady's aircraft was not found until 2000. If you look at the 8th image posted you will see the '88' of 88-0550. You will also see in the images posted a poster showing 88-0550 with the Eagle on the tail. 88-0550 was the flag ship of the Triple Nickels as you can see in the following image: http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/Images/unit03/f1688550.jpg Links for the finding of O'Grady's aircraft: http://www.usafe.af.mil/news/news00/uns00142.htm http://www.scribevision.com/49adtalon/tal051300/articles/O'Grady's%20F-… http://www.nato.int/sfor/advisory/2000/t000428a.htm TJ

Yep, I didn't research the records first. I had assumed that O'Grady's was the only one lost from the 555 and was posting off the top of my head.
