Fort Worth recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the F-16 fighter jet, a milestone that highlights the enduring legacy of this iconic aircraft. Known for its agility, versatility, and combat effectiveness, the F-16 has been hailed as one of the best planes ever made, earning a special place in the history of aviation and in the hearts of the Fort Worth Community.


InterConnect Wiring, a proud contributor to the F-16 program, played a crucial role in ensuring the aircraft’s operational excellence through our high quality aircraft wiring harnesses, cockpit panels, circuit breaker panels, matrix (mux) assemblies, and relay panels. This collaboration not only underscores the importance of local industry in supporting military advancements but also reflects the strong ties between Fort Worth’s capabilities and national defense achievements. 


The celebration featured various events, including the unveiling of a newly restored YF-16 at the Fort Worth Aviation Museum.
