OA-37 Dragonflies taking off at Truax Field
Two OA-37 Dragonflies take off near Truax Field. In 1979, the 176th Tactical Air Support Squadron, now called the 115th Fighter Wing, became one of the preliminary units to receive the OA-37 Dragonfly aircraft, moving the unit's Forward Air Control (FAC) mission from a propeller to a jet. The aircraft would be phased out over the next two years.
