No new jets for Duluth 148th Fighter Wing

Lawmakers had been pushing for jets

The Duluth 148th Fighter Wing will not be getting F–35A fighter planes.

Five other bases across the U.S. remain on the Air Force list to potentially get them.

Two locations will eventually get F–35A fighters several years from now.

Minnesota lawmakers had been pushing to get the jets to Duluth to replace the current fleet of F–16s at the base.
