Critical decade of Hill Air Force Base newspaper now online

A P-51 Mustang (1940-1968) and an F16 Fighting Falcon soar together at the 2012 Air Show, “Warriors Over the Wasatch: A Legacy of Valor.”


The 2005-2015 decade was an eventful one for Hill Air Force Base. Utah airmen were deployed to Iraq. The base commemorated its 75th anniversary. It broke ground on a $2.1 million upgrade to the 75th Medical Group Facility, which provides primary care to active-duty military personnel and their families. And HAFB employees began maintenance on new weapons systems like the F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

Now readers can enjoy perusing the base newspaper, The Hilltop Times, for 2005 through 2015, on the Utah Digital Newspapers web site. The newspaper is in full color and keyword-searchable. Enter a search term and retrieve every page that includes it. Here’s a selection of photographs from the decade.
