AFCENT Commander Flies with 77 EFS

U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Alexus Grynkewich, 9th Air Force (Air Forces Central) commander, prepares for flight at Prince Sultan Air Base, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Apr. 4, 2023. During the mission, the general flew over airspace in Syria, in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and the Coalition service members deployed in the region who work with Syrian Democratic Forces to battle the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Since the beginning of March, Russian aircraft have violated deconfliction protocols, which were established between the Coalition and Russia to avoid miscalculations and potentially dangerous encounters in the airspace in 2019, 63 times.
