The 149th Fighter Wing, The “Gunfighters”, a squadron of Texas Air National Guard F-16 fighter jets, flew over Lubbock Monday morning in support of local hospitals, health care providers and caregivers.

Lubbock physician Colonel Larry Warmoth, a Gunfighter for 14 years, and the military for 29 years, will retire from the Guard this December. Dr. Warmoth has cared for patients at both Covenant Health and UMC Health System and wanted to do something special for both hospitals, as well as other local health care workers.

The Gunfighters are made up of 30 pilots who fly the F-16, the fighting Falcon (the pilots refer to it as the Viper). The Gunfighters pilots for Monday are Kuda, Motown, Dirty, and Jaws. They will come into Lubbock heading east over Covenant Children’s and to Covenant Medical Center before banking north and heading to UMC’s and TTUHSC campus.
