  • Commentary: Gunfighter innovation empowers Airmen to 'take flight'

    Being a Gunfighter means being an innovator. We got our name because someone, in the thick of it and on the front lines, figured out that sticking guns on an airplane was the best way to get the job done. We have always been about getting the job done efficiently and effectively, our motto reflects that: “Ride Hard. Shoot Straight. And Always Speak the Truth.” Innovation isn’t just about finding ways to better our wing, base, MAJCOM, Air Force, or Department of Defense, we are breathing life into our heritage, providing today’s Gunfighters with the tools to get our long-standing culture of innovation off the ground, ensuring it remains aloft for the Airmen of tomorrow.

  • 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.
