Air Force Global Strike Command chief, Gen. James Kowalski confirmed that the air service is currently refurbishing three UH-INs that it got from the Marine Corps to replace three Air Force Hueys that have been lost over the years. If the aircraft are in decent shape, and it doesn’t cost too much to get them ready for Air Force service, the blue suiters will look into buying more used Hueys.

Looks like the tables have been turned and Chairforce gets to operate hand-me-downs for once. Ha ha!!!
