Rapid Crew Swaps


Four F-15E Strike Eagle aircrews from the 494th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron conduct a rapid crew swap Oct. 3, 2021, at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia.

During a rapid crew swap, the aircraft lands, maintenance performs minimal actions for relaunch, aircraft is refueled, and a new crew takes over.

Rapid crew swap training further enhances the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing’s capabilities to project combat power.
