Exercise Coronet Warrior 17-01 was a two-day event that tested the abilities of the 4th Fighter Wing members to complete contingency operations at an overseas location in our current area of responsibility.
Members of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina and Marine Corps Air Station New River, North Carolina, completed a simulated rescue mission during CW 17-01. The scenario consisted of a simulated crash of an F-15E Strike Eagle. Capts. Steve Keck, and Cody Williams, 336th Fighter Squadron pilot and weapon systems officer respectively, acted as the downed aircrew from the simulated crash. Their goal was to give rescue crews a precise location to conduct rescue procedures. The aircrew were able to utilize a field for cover while awaiting help, who rescued them within an hour.
