Holloman Sends More
F-117 Stealths To S Korea
ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Fifteen F 117A Nighthawk stealth fighters are leaving Holloman Air Force Base this week for South Korea.
The 49th Fighter Wing announced the deployment of about 250 airmen and the stealths Monday. About two dozen stealths and 300 airmen were deployed from Holloman to Kunsan Air Base in South Korea last summer. Officials wouldn't disclose where in South Korea they would be going.
The deployment comes as North Korea threatens a nuclear weapons test. The White House urged North Korea Monday to return to diplomatic talks.
