Hill AFB officially ended an era Friday at a Viper Out ceremony celebrating 38-years of the F-16 at the base. Current and former military members, pilots, maintainers, civic leaders and friends packed Hangar 37 to bid farewell to the plane dubbed the Viper, because of its appearance at take-off. The Viper will no longer routinely fill the northern Utah skies as Hill’s jets are assigned to other locations, primarily Holloman AFB, New Mexico, making room for the F-35A and keeping Hill at the cutting edge of flying technology.

Forty years ago, the United States Air Force announced that the 388th Fighter Wing would be the first unit to transition to the F-16 Fighting Falcon, now more commonly known as the Viper. Thirty-eight years ago, the first operational F-16A took to the skies here and the Viper has been slipping the surly bonds of earth over Utah ever since.
