Mission ready
U.S. Air Force Airmen from the 52nd Intelligence Flight, review a map of Germany during training at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. Members have to get specialized training on the F-16 Fighting Falcon before being mission capable for the 480th Fighter Squadron. Slots were cut last year and without training, the Airmen couldn’t deploy or support the mission. To avoid mission failure, the intelligence flight here was the first and only to teach the F-16 Intelligence Formal Training Unit at home base.
