A-10s hit targets during C-17 Airborne Jump


A-10 Thunderbolts and C-17 Globemasters and approximately 130 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division participate in the Joint Forcible Entry Exercise or JFE 14B over Keno Airfield on the Nevada Test & Training Range and return later that afternoon, December 6th, 2014. JFE is a US Air Force Weapons School large scale air mobility exercise in which participants plan and execute a complex air-land operation in a simulated contested battlefield. JFE exercises participants ability to synchronize aircraft movements from geographically-separated bases, command large formations of dissimilar aircraft in high threat airspace, and tactically deliver and recover combat forces via air drops and combat landings on an unimproved landing strip.
