New era in combat air power begins

Utah Senator Mike Lee speaks to an audience gathered to witness an F-35 unveiling ceremony at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, Oct. 14. Earlier this year, the re-activation of the 34th Fighter Squadron marked an historic milestone for the Air Force, as the unit became the first operational Air Force unit to fly combat-coded F-35s. The 388th and 419th Fighter Wings received the first two combat-coded F-35s Sept. 2. (U.S. Air Force photo by Alex R. Lloyd/Released)
