J-STARS in trouble without new engines, says retiring commander
from The Macon Telegraph
Maj. Gen. Scott A. Hammond, commander of the Georgia Air National Guard, warned that the future of the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System aircraft would be in doubt without new engines. The Air Force's fleet of J-STARS aircraft is operated by the 116th Air Control Wing at Robins Air Force Base, a blended unit of Air National Guard and active duty troops. The Air Force's 17 J-STARS aircraft at Robins fly with engines that are more than 40 years old.
