History Quiz - week of Dec. 18

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Last week's answer:

For how long has the North American Aerospace Defense Command and its predecessor organizations been tracking Santa?  The Continental Air Defense Command, predecessor to North American Aerospace Defense Command, began tracking Santa in 1955 after an error in a Sears advertisement had children calling the command's operations center to talk to Santa.  NORAD continued the tradition when it replaced CONAD in 1958. 

This week's question:
On Dec. 30, 1981, the 50th Tactical Fighter (now Space) Wing received its first F-16A Fighting Falcon as it transitioned from the F-4E.  To which squadron was the aircraft delivered?
