Thunderbolt Digital Edition - November 2020



Hello, everyone and thanks for checking out the November 2020 issue of Luke AFB Thunderbolt! Our cover story this month features the ongoing F-35 training partnership between the U.S. Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force. The joint pilot-training at Luke AFB makes RAAF’s F-35 mission fully operational in Australia. “There’s a deeper meaning to what this partnership does here at Luke, and it has strategic-level implications,” says Lt. Col. Tom Hayes, 61st FS commander. “The common tactic is sharing the same training strategies between the RAAF and the U.S. Air Force.” Click through on the link below for the full story, and much more news in the latest digital edition of Luke AFB Thunderbolt, viewable on your computer or mobile device.
