Hill’s first operational F-35 unit to activate

HILL AIR FORCE BASE – The 34th Fighter Squadron will officially reclaim its place in the 388th Fighter Wing at an activation ceremony July 17 at 2:34 p.m.

The re-activation of the squadron will be a historic milestone for the Air Force, as the 34th FS will become the first operational Air Force unit to fly combat-coded F-35s. Being at the tip of the proverbial spear is nothing new to the 34th, since the squadron was the first combat unit to fly one of the Air Force’s most prolific airframes back in 1979 – the F-16. 

The 34th FS furled its flag in 2010 as part of an Air Force restructuring plan aimed at funding a smaller and more capable force. 

Col. David B. Lyons, who assumed command of the 388th Fighter Wing last month, was the 34th FS commander when the unit was inactivated. Fittingly, he’ll preside over the activation of his former unit and will lead the Air Force into a new era of combat air power.
