WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following after the Air Force officially awarded an F-35 basing to Truax Field in Madison:

“Today’s news ensures Wisconsin’s 115th Fighter Wing, based at Truax Field in Madison, will now receive a critical upgrade with the F-35 replacing the aging F-16 fighter jets currently in service. The new fighters will help maintain U.S. air superiority and keep our state and country safe and secure. The F-35s will also ensure the Air National Guard continues to play an important role in Wisconsin’s communities and economy.”
