Tyndall’s new delivery

Published: Friday, November 30, 2012 at 09:44 AM.

From Mexico Beach to Port St. Joe, there will be a new, or old depending on viewpoint, jet overhead on a continual basis. Last week, Tyndall Air Force Base took delivery on its first QF-16, the drone conversion of the F-16. The new QF-16 was escorted to Tyndall from Boeing’s conversion facility in Jacksonville by one of Tyndall’s QF-4 jets, which will be transferred to another base in roughly two years.
