The 4th Fighter Squadron was formed as the 4th Pursuit Squadron in 1941. Based at Naha AB in 1948 the 4th PS lost half their aircraft to a devastating storm so they chose the name Fightin Fuujins after the Okinawan God of Wind "Fuujin". The 4th PS fought in Korea, Vietnam and conflicts against Iraq. In 1965 the unit was designated 4th TFS and in 1975 moved to Hill AFB as part of the 388th FW and became the 4th FS in 1991. In 2017 the 4th FS became the second unit to re-equip with the F-35A.

Lockheed F-35A Lightning II

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
