A pilot from the 354th Fighter Wing at Eielson AFB, Alaska, performs pre-flight checks in an F-35A Lightning II from the 388th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, April 27. Four fighter jets from Hill will be on loan to the 354th FW at Eielson as they stand up F-35A operations. More jets on hand at Eielson allows for more operational and maintenance training.
