An F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned to the 310th Fighter Squadron taxis down a runway March 25, 2020, at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. There are 77 F-16s assigned at Luke, which allows Luke to train the world’s greatest fighter pilots and combat ready Airmen. Since implementing preventative health measures for Coronavirus Disease 2019, the base has reduced flying hours and implemented minimum manning measures to maximize health precautions designed to protect personnel while balancing the Department of Defense’s sustained requirement for trained pilots to achieve national security objectives.
