  • Hill to Eielson: Cooperation between first, newest F-35A wing speeds stand-up, shapes future

    Four F-35A Lightning IIs from Hill’s 388th Fighter Wing took off on a four-hour flight across the Pacific Northwest for Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The Air Force’s first combat-coded F-35A Lightning II wing is sending aircraft to the Air Force’s newest F-35A wing to help speed their stand-up. It is a win to help them get in the fight faster and to no longer be the only combat-coded F-35A unit. In the long term this provides a brother in arms, who is going to take the fight to the enemy with the 388th.
