Hello, everyone and thanks for checking out the September 2020 issue of Luke AFB Thunderbolt! A total of 38 Fighter Country pilots participated in the recent Gunfighter Flag Large Force Exercise, headquartered out of Mountain Home AFB, Idaho. As with so many things these days, the whole exercise forced the participating squadrons to adapt, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Luke AFB pilots minimized contact, refueling before and after the mission to prevent landing at Mountain Home AFB, and engaged in a host of other modifications to ensure the training was conducted safely and effectively. Adapt and overcome – that’s what we do.
