Upgraded for combat

The final 388th Fighter Wing Block 40 F-16 to undergo Common Configuration Implementation Program upgrades is handed over to Col. Scott Dennis, 388th FW commander, in a ceremony April 21. Beginning in November 2005, depot workers from the 309th Maintenance Wing, led by Brig. Gen. Art Cameron, invested over 5,500 maintenance hours into each of 388th FW's 72 aircraft. CCIP brings upgraded avionics and communications systems to pilots in combat. Hill's 4th Fighter Squadron was the first to fly CCIP F-16s in combat in August 2007.
