"Flying the F-16 never gets old, even if I do," says Lieutenant Colonel Tim Conklin, commander of the 120th. "I'm amazed at the advances the aircraft has made in the 22 years I've flown it. The jets I fly today are the same tails I flew in Desert Storm, but the combat capability is exponentially better. I'm hopeful our squadron can transition to the F-35, but the F-16 will always be my first love."
