The 115th Fighter Wing operates the F-16C+ “Fighting Falcon” as its primary weapon system, as well as, the RC-26B aircraft in the global Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission.  Colonel Wiegand received his commission in 1989 after graduating from the United States Air Force Academy. His past assignments include flying duties at five US Air Force fighter wings. Previous commands include the 115th Maintenance Group, 115th Operations Group and the 176th Fighter Squadron. Colonel Wiegand deployed to the Iraqi Theater of Operations six times and led the 115th Fighter Wing Air Expeditionary Force Aviation package into combat in Iraq two times.  He is a command pilot with over 3,300 flying hours, including over 3,000 in the F-16.
