Hogs and The Black Jet with Jon Boyd

Lt. Col. (Rtd) Jon Boyd served in the USAF through transformational times. Joining in the late 1970s, Jon would fly the venerable Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, the Hog to those who fly her, before joining the then Top Secret program that was working up the Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk, The Black Jet as Jon refers to it. It would be flying the Stealth Fighter that Jon would see combat over Iraq during Desert Storm. Jon was very generous with his time and it was fantastic to be able to walk around one of his old aircraft, 84-0810 Dark Angel, which is being readied for display at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona.
