The 18th Wing executed the third iteration of Exercise WestPac Rumrunner with joint partners Oct. 16th and focused on improved interoperability as well as fine-tuning agile combat employment concepts. ACE is the cornerstone of the wing’s operating concept.
It enables forces to operate from locations with varying levels of capacity & support, ensuring multi-capable Airmen are postured in a position of advantage to generate combat power.
Of note, the 344th Air Refueling Squadron KC-46A Pegasus from McConnell Air Force Base made its debut during Team Kadena’s Rumrunner exercise.
