158th FW Pilots Reunite for F-35 Lessons in Florida
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., (September 17, 2019) — Two months have gone by of simulators, briefings, debriefings and over 150 hours of instruction. It leads up to being on your own, no backseat, no one with you. There is a certain amount of anxiety that comes with the unknowns of doing something for the first time. For the first flight however, Capt. Jeremy Devlin will be there, a familiar face in roles that are now reversed. Lt. Col. Nathan Graber, a pilot assigned to the 134th Fighter Squadron of the Vermont Air National Guard, once instructed Devlin when he was a new F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot. Now, as a new F-35 Lightning II pilot, it is Graber’s turn to be the student.
A Vermont Trailblazer Recognized
“I can’t do what I do without the (personnel) team helping. This took a team of people to accomplish what was accomplished, it wasn’t just one person doing it all.
