No one in Spokane, Washington, was surprised to hear that their local Airman kicked ‘tail fin’ and took names at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Air Mobility Command Rodeo held in Tacoma this past week.
The 92nd Air Refueling Wing of Fairchild AFB took top honors against teams from across the United States and seven foreign nations in the biennial airlift competition.
With a four-person flight crew and 13 maintenance specialists the 92nd ARW demonstrated their outstanding skills in all aspects of air readiness.
The Rodeo provides a place for Airmen and their international partners to share their best tactics and techniques. Improvement and cooperation are key in the continued support of the Global War on Terror.
Congratulations and “two wings up” to the 92nd Air Refueling Wing of Fairchild.
Examiner’s Commentary: This Examiner was a bit disappointed that our local Joint Base Charleston did not take the top spot at this year’s Air Rodeo. Maybe in 2013!
Of note, Team Pakistan had to “borrow” four members from JB Lewis-McChord in order to compete since there were last minute visa complications for four of their flight surgeons.
