Take a look back at all the work the Airmen of the Vermont Air National Guard accomplished to convert the 158th Fighter Wing from the F-16 Fighting Falcon to the U.S. Air Force's newest 5th generation aircraft, the F-35A Lightning II. This conversion journey began in 2017 and continues still today to prepare the unit for becoming declared combat ready by the end of 2021.
