  • 726th ACS exercise enhances readiness, rapid global mobility, builds leaders

    On the outskirts of base, a dirt road strays away from the comforts of civilization and deeper into the high desert. Luckily, the Air Force doesn’t need comfort or civilization to operate. The 726th Air Control Squadron refined their adaptive basing capabilities during Hardrock Exercise 19-2, July 9-19, 2019, at the Mobile Operating Air Base (MOAB) within Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho.
  • FARP: Land, refuel, leave

    In the darkness of night, forward area refueling point team members wait for an HC-130J Combat King II to land – marking the start of training. FARP, a specialty within the petroleum, oils and lubrication career field, trains Airmen to effectively refuel aircraft in remote locations when air-to-air refueling is not possible or when fueling stations are not accessible.
  • BDS strengthens airfield security capabilities

    The 823d Base Defense Squadron (BDS) conducted airfield security operations during adaptive base training, Jan. 28-29, 2018, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. The training was geared around bolstering the 823d BDS’s adaptive base readiness to give more autonomy at the squadron level, where Airmen improved their capabilities to effectively and efficiently on-load equipment along with more than 30 fully-equipped personnel into an aircraft, followed by off-loading into establishing airfield security.
  • 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.
