Welcome to the June 7th edition of Nellis-Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! You may see a “Ghost” streaking across the skies of southern Nevada, in the form of a newly tricked-out F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned to Nellis AFB 64th Aggressor Squadron. Aircraft painters with the Mission First crew worked to spiff up this Falcon with fresh paint, decals and stencils, a “people’s choice” design chosen with the help of social media. Talk about teamwork! Click on the link below to read the full story and check out some great pics of the Ghost, in this week’s issue of Desert Lightning News!
