I was at Langley Air Force Base September 15, 2006 — By now it is something people expect to hear when the attacks come up in conversation. "Where were you on Sept. 11?" For some of the men and women directly involved with the attack's aftermath, the answer is, "I was at Langley Air Force Base, and I was in the fight." Airmen from all over Langley were involved, in one form or another, with the MORE

Officers' Spouses' Club: Providing fun, resources, lifelong friendships September 7, 2006 —  White gloves. Hats. Pearls. Afternoon tea. These may be the first things you think of when you hear "Officers' Spouses' Club." And back in the 1950's those things were true. But the organization has changed with the times. Notice the name - Officers' Spouses' Club - not Officers' Wives' Club. Men are now a welcome and vital part of the club. MORE

'Ready Elmendorf:' U.S. needs F-22 capability in Pacific, beyond September 7, 2006 — Location, location, location. We're not talking real estate, we're talking strategic advantage. Though jets like the Raptor can get just about anywhere in the world with tanker support, housing different F-22 squadrons at specific points around the globe ensures a timely response for any conflict. "The bad news is when you are talking about going MORE

Don't become another statistic August 31, 2006 — Do you have your designated driver? Have you thought that far ahead? Did you make a plan you will stick with? Sadly, not enough military members can answer, "Yes" to all three of these questions. The statistics across the military are staggering. So far this year, the Air Combat Command has had two Driving Under the Influence-related fatalities and MORE

Aces to return for Tattoo August 31, 2006 — The Air Combat Command and 1st Fighter Wing Tattoo is about history, and what better way to understand history than to meet some of the men who helped make it? Former 1st FW World War II aces will attend this year's tattoo, including Joel Owens, a former 27th Fighter Squadron commander credited with being the first pilot to shoot down an ME-109 MORE

'Ready Elmendorf:' Manning, timing issues incite careful planning August 31, 2006 — Wanted: skilled Raptor maintainers, pilots and support personnel wanted for hire in semi-remote location Job description: stand up the first Alaskan F-22A Raptor squadron Perk: plenty of travel, especially to Langley AFB Hitch: long, cold winters Though the climate may scare some off, plenty of volunteers have already raised their hands to help MORE

New Sound of Freedom goes back two decades August 25, 2006 — When then Tactical Air Command Gen. Bob Russ asked then Lt. Col. Jay Welsh to put on a tattoo like the one he saw at Randolph AFB earlier that year, Mr. Welsh had no idea that nearly 20 years later, he'd still be doing it or that it would become such an integral part of Langley's culture. Today, the Air Combat Command Tattoo remains virtually MORE

"Ready Elmendorf": Raptor's next challenge takes F-22 north August 25, 2006 — Picture the late 1980's at the United States Air Force Academy. A young cadet sees concept pictures of the next super-stealthy American fighter jet. Foaming at the mouth ensues. Now fast forward 20 years. That same kid is not only flying said jet, but he was just named commander of the next F-22A Raptor squadron. Meet Lt. Col. Michael Shower, F-22 MORE

Casualty office: Light of hope for those in mourning August 18, 2006 — The funeral has passed and you have no idea what to do. Did you know there is help out there to ensure you're as taken cared of as possible? That's where the Langley Casualty Office comes in. The Langley Casualty Office helps people every day face an uncertain future when their loved one has passed away. "Our primary purpose is to report casualties MORE

Raptor summer stats impress critics August 18, 2006 — The news here isn't that the F-22A Raptor went out of town and participated in exercises this summer. Critics and fans alike have heard that by now. What they haven't heard: the facts and figures produced during the training. "We took the jets and our people more than 3,200 miles from their support structure at home," said Lt. Col. Wade Tolliver, MORE

The flightline can be a dangerous place as a recent visitor to JBLE learned the hard way. As he ventured closer to the most lethal fighter jet on the planet, this fellow flier was faced with his own mortality. This cautionary tale serves as a frightening reminder to always practice situational awareness.
