Members from the 52nd Fighter Wing receive final qualification training
U.S. Air Force 480th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots and 52nd Operations Support Squadron analysts learn locations on a map to get a better understanding of the European theater before a week-long verification event at Spangdahlem Air Base, Dec. 1, 2017. Verifications are the final Mission Qualification Training required for designation as a Combat Mission Ready pilot, and at Spangdahlem it offers the 52nd Operations Group and 52nd Maintenance Group an opportunity to test European Command and United States Air Forces in Europe readiness while providing lessons learned for higher headquarters.
