FIGHTER FAREWELL: 132nd Fighter Wing Retiring
By the end of the summer, you will no longer see F-16 Fighter Jets flying through the sky over the metro. Due to Federal Budget cuts the unit is being returned and being replaced with drones. For over 70-years fighters have filled the skies over Des Moines. Soon the roar of the engine will fall silent as the Air Guards F-16 unit starts to phase out.
