. D-M Airmen balance flexibility, survivability, lethality in readiness exercise
DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. – Landing in an austere location, a small number of Airmen move at a rapid pace to accomplish a very specific mission. With only the necessary supplies needed to survive for a week, they begin to unload food, shelter and equipment. After unloading, they set up a campsite as home base for their operations. During this joint-force readiness exercise, known as Pegasus Forge, the 355th Wing’s dynamic forward adaptive basing team deployed a small number of A-10 Thunderbolt IIs and a team of hybrid Airmen from various squadrons throughout the wing. During this first iteration of Pegasus Forge, the Airmen’s mission was to wield rapid combat power from a position of advantage with minimal footprint.

. Air Force ICTs make a comeback
While A-10 Thunderbolt IIs fly high above the desert mountains, U.S. Air Force maintainers and crew chiefs from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base await the airframe’s arrival on the flight line below, anticipating the workload to come. After their touch down, the A-10s taxi to their respective sun shades where the crews, with tools in hand, prepare to begin maintenance. They immediately get to work loading the aircraft with armaments, checking fuel levels and refueling it in order to get the jet back in the air as quickly as possible while the engines are still running. Once all processes are complete, the A-10s are ready to take off and fly another sortie.
