After a two-year conversion period, the 120th Airlift Wing is now fully operational.
For the last two years, the unit switched from flying F-15 fighter jets to the C-130 cargo planes that required training and new facilities, created new positions and eliminated others.
During the conversion, the wing could volunteer for deployments and missions, but couldn’t be tasked from higher headquarters to go.
