Desert Lightning News – Serving Davis Monthan AFB, Tucson AZ and surrounding communities

Desert Lightning News Digital Edition

We have a great issue of news and features prepared for you this month – thanks for checking us out! On page 3, we salute D-M pilots Maj. Tyler Schultz and Capt. Samantha Harvey, who were each awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroic actions in support of US Army forces in Syria. On page 8, we report on the 563rd Rescue Group’s annual Spouse Appreciation Day festivities at D-M. And we hope you enjoy this month’s photo spread and feature story, highlighting the work of the U.S Air Force Heritage Flight program. Heritage Flight aerial demonstrations have become a staple of air show programs nationwide, and are a powerful way to reach out and build connections with communities by sharing the history and evolution of military aircraft, as well as educating the public about the mission of the USAF.

That’s just a sample of what we have prepared for you in the April edition of Desert Lightning News! Hard copies of the newspaper hit the streets starting April 6th.
