HILL AIR FORCE BASE — With no planes in sight, the only thing with wings in Hangar 37 on Hill Air Force Base’s flightline was the turkey.
The men and women of Hill’s two fighter wings will get a pair of Thanksgiving feasts this year. As an added bonus to what they’ll eat today, Hill’s 388th and 419th Fighter Wings held a combined Thanksgiving feast in one of the base’s airplane hangars Wednesday afternoon.
The massive meal fed more than 1,500 people, including airmen and their families. The meal featured 48 turkeys, 30 hams, 140 boxes of stuffing, 70 boxes of potatoes and nearly every food item one could desire on Thanksgiving Day.
