Our very own 97th Contracting Flight traveled to Fort Sill with four other Air Education and Training Command bases for a full week to practice operating in a deployed environment. From learning the ropes, to a simulated robbery and even field navigation, our Contracting Flight is ready to deploy for the mission!
Maintainers of the KC-135 Flight assigned to the 97th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, accomplished not only having every KC-135 ready for today’s training but 100% of the entire inventory ready. The last time this was accomplished was over 10 years ago. Congratulations for being the tip of the spear.
Let's wrap up the Air Force Assistance Fund drive with a Fun Run! May 4th @ 0700 at the Altus Fitness Center.
For those who missed the Committee of 100 last night, the photos can be found on our base Flickr page! https://www.flickr.com/photos/97amw/albums/72157668186566618
