The last of 252 Air Force legacy fighter aircraft being withdrawn from service under the Fiscal 2010 Combat Air Forces restructure will be retired the week of Oct. 4, 2010, according to Capt. Shannon Collins, an Air Combat Command spokeswoman. She told the Daily Report that the drawdown will conclude Oct. 6-7, 2010, with the induction of two final F-16s from the South Dakota Air National Guard's 114th Fighter Wing at Sioux Falls into the Air Force's boneyard at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz. Here, an F-16 assigned to the 114th Fighter Wing takes off.
The next Daily Report will be Tuesday, Feb. 19, due to the Presidents Day holiday.
