According to a recent article in The News Journal, the Delaware Air National Guard “has flown into hot spots all over the world” during its 60-plus year history. The report offers a brief glimpse of the history of the Delaware Air Guard, from its fighter unit days to its present as the 166th Airlift Wing, which narrowly escaped the BRAC 2005 axe. Short, but nice piece.
Three B-1B Lancers from the 7th Bomb Wing flew over the Indo-Pacific alongside F-16s from the Japanese Air Self Defense Force recently, as part of a joint large force exercise. The mission began and ended in the continental U.S., as the bombers flew 31 hours and landed Jan. 11.
