FAIRBANKS- An Air Force fighter squadron based at a Fairbanks base has returned to the air.
The F-16 Aggressor Squadron based at Eielson Air Force Base has been grounded for three months because of budget cuts.
The squadron, along with about a third of the Air Force's combat fleet, has had funding restored by Congress.
Brig. Gen. Kelly says the Aggressor squadron will still fly at a reduced rate, but will train for the Red Flag-Alaska exercise set for Aug. 8-23.
