10/27/2007 - HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- The past, present and future aircraft of Holloman Air Force Base flew together in a Holloman Legacy Flight Oct. 27 during the 2007 Holloman Air and Space Expo. 

An F-4 Phantom, F-15 Eagle, F-117 Nighthawk and F-22 Raptor flew together in the first ever Holloman Legacy flight showcasing all aircraft that have been a part the Holloman mission. 

"It was fantastic to see where we've been and where we are going," said Staff Sgt. William Bowers, 49th Communications Squadron. "It represents the great strides we've made in aircraft combat." 

The Legacy Flight was one performance the spectators were looking forward to, and it was not a disappointment. 

"It was one of the best things in the airshow," said Mr. Tom Talley, a retired Army first sergeant. 

The flight also brought memories to some people who take many of the aircraft to heart. 

"This was outstanding," said retired Air Force Master Sgt. Dean Wardell. "There is a lot of history in the flight. I've worked on every simulator except the Raptor. I get to do that next and I'm so excited." 

The Holloman Legacy flight brought together the past, present and future of Holloman and will be remembered by all who saw.
