  • Reeling in the big one, Air Force-style

    When the weather outside is frightful, what better thing to do than pack up your rod and tackle and head out to the lake -- which, mind you, is frozen over -- for some ice fishing. It may sound like a crazy idea, but members of the 575th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron have been doing just that for three years now. They've even turned it into a
  • Another mystery for Hill Museum

    An F-104A Starfighter achieved its lowest and slowest fly-by Feb. 18 as it cruised down Wardleigh Road at less than 10 mph. The aircraft was pulled by an aircraft tug vehicle and flanked by 75th Security Forces Squadron cruisers while an escort, Shawn McIntyre, walked next to the F-104's wing. The escorts ensured a clear path throughout Wardleigh
  • Hill teams compete for base Survivor title

    There are no plans for the popular CBS TV show "Survivor" to have a Hill Air Force Base season, but it's obvious that if a season of "Survivor" were to be filmed here, there'd be challenges, teamwork and action galore. Despite the lack of an exotic locale, dishes of disgusting cuisine and the scheming competitors that usually go along with a
  • First cycle of B-2 repairs bring praise

    In February 2000, the then-Aircraft Directorate launched an "advanced composite repair capability" to support work on portions of the B-2 Spirit aircraft.

  • Silent thieves -- even military need protection

    Last month, Heartland Payment Systems, a nationwide credit card transaction processor, and Monster Worldwide, an international job-search Web site holding millions of resumes, experienced breaches in their databases which compromised personal information on millions of clients. In some instances, the computer hackers furthered the damage by sending
  • Chief's Corner

    The Fiscal Year 2009 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizes 10 days of permissive  paternity leave (non-chargeable) to married members of the armed forces on active duty whose wife gives birth to a child. Upon approval by the unit commander, the absence will be taken over consecutive days and must be taken within 60 days following the
  • AFMC commander emphasizes priorities during 'immersion visit'

    Air Force Materiel Command's new leader is looking for fresh ideas and continuous improvement across the board, but he is not planning any drastic changes in how the command accomplishes its mission.
