F16CM over Libya

First In, Operation Odyssey Dawn

On a starry, moonlit night off the Libyan coast, F-16CMs of the 480thFS spearhead the Allied air offensive against Gaddafi's Libya. A F-16CM banks away from a HARM strike against a SA-8 site in Benghazi while others lead attacking F-15Es and B-2 bombers towards their targets inland. Commissioned by the squadron. Oil, 24 x 36 ins.
