Gen. Mark D. Kelly, commander of Air Combat Command, visited with Ogden Air Logistics Complex and 388th Fighter Wing units at Hill Air Force Base on Aug 9.

During his visit, he met with the units' military and civilian workforce while being updated on fighter aircraft maintenance, sustainment and operations.

“For decades, the depot workforce at Hill has sustained America's fighter fleet to meet the needs of ACC and our warfighters,” said Kelly on his Facebook page after the visit. “Depot maintenance harnesses cutting-edge technology to meet the micro-tolerances required in our fifth-generation fighters and to modify all variants of the F-35A Lightning II and F-22 Raptor.

“For years the depot has extended the lives of proven legacy platforms like the F-16 and A-10 by tearing them down to the bones and building them back up again,” he continued. “Our (Combat Air Force) is grateful for the dedication, professionalism, and attention to detail of the depot workforce.”
