800 airmen added to Holloman AFB

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Holloman Air Force Base is now home to the 54th fighter group.

The F-16’s and their support personnel were welcomed to the base Tuesday. The addition will add about 800 airmen to Holloman.

Holloman officials say this fighter group, which is a detachment of the wing at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, will allow for combat air power on the base.

Holloman recently lost its F-22’s.
