Rumor, and loud goings-on at Capital Airport, has it that the 183rd Fighter Wing is being deployed this week. It’s all very secret lest the Terrorist Air Force be tipped off and lie in wait to ambush them. Loose lips and all that. Too bad we don’t have compete and total air supremacy over the entire world (that’s sarcasm, we do).
Anyway, not to be selfish about the 183rd but Air Rendezvous is only six weeks away. They may be gone longer than that depending on the nature of the deployment. I know the 183rd isn’t here for our entertainment but it would be a shame if they weren’t here for what has to be one of their last Springfield Air Rendezvous’.
Update: JP in comments says they are headed for Diego Garcia (in the Indian Ocean) for several months.
