The F-16 belonged to the Iraqi Air Force. The pilot was an Iraqi student. The 162nd provides training for foreign pilots.

Iraq is so dependent on American contractors maintaining their gear that if Iraq turned on us, give them roughly half a year before every American piece of gear in Iraq's inventory is out of service.
