  • Gunfighter Flag 18-3, Adaptive Basing

    Adaptive basing exercises require all levels of the squadron to deploy small teams of Airmen and aircraft for a short amount of time to hone their skills. Adaptive basing is the ability to rapidly refuel and re-arm F-15’s in an austere environment, a location we haven’t operated from before. It could have some support facilities or just a runway in the middle of nowhere. Every quarter, the 366th Fighter Wing holds “Gunfighter Flag”, an exercise where the fighter squadrons participate in air-to-air and air-to-ground training to maintain F-15E Strike Eagles during peace-time and war-time contingencies. The concept is still fairly new and has been improving.
