Histories for 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing




Deployment of the 82nd FIS
The 82nd Fighter Interceptor Squadron deployed the entire squadron, personnel and aircraft (an Air Defense Command first) from Travis AFB, Calif., to Naha AB, Okinawa in February 1966. Prior to its' deployment the F102 aircraft were modified with refueling booms for their flight across the Pacific. The 82nd was attached to the 51st FIW at that time and assigned to the 51st in June 1966 until sometime in 1971 when the squadron was disbanded and most of the 102s scrapped on site.
