Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - August 2020

Hello, fans and friends, thanks for checking out the August 2020 edition of Davis-Monthan AFB Desert Lightning News! Davis-Monthan AFB personnel recently hosted a C-130J Super Hercules aircrew from the 34th Combat Training Squadron, Little Rock Air Force Base, for a unique joint training exercise. This marked the first time an Air Mobility Command aircraft has trained with Airmen from Air Combat Command. “Davis-Monthan has taken the lead in recognizing that we are going to have to think differently about how we are going to deploy forces and operate in a near-peer situation,” said Lt. Col. Phillip Newman, 34th CTS commander. “We are figuring out how mobility airlift can play into their mission.” Click on the link below to read this and other stories in your free digital copy of Desert Lightning News, viewable on your computer or mobile device.
