Oklahoma Wants the F-35

We’re proud to call Oklahoma home.
It’s in Oklahomans’ DNA to support the Air Force, given Oklahoma’s rich aerospace history, our unwavering patriotism and our tradition of embracing defense initiatives. Oklahomans see bringing the F-35 to Tulsa as an opportunity, not a disturbance.

“The Air Force need look no further than the 138th Fighter Wing if it is looking for the most professional and proven combat-ready airmen with unmatched community support. The support for our military, their families and their mission is unconditional in Oklahoma. There is no greater sound than the sound of freedom.”
