Interesting, I didn't know they had F-16s at Travis. I thought all of them for the Norcal area were at the ANG unit Fresno, or did that change recently?

ryu2, I'm not sure if there are F-16s at Travis or not.

Other media coverage says that Travis AFB was contacted and dispatched the jets. But note in this article it never says the F-16s were based at Travis, just dispatched by the base. So it could just be poor rewriting at the SJ Mercury. I have a feeling the planes were based at FAT.
