Vipers in AFSOUTH
Two South Carolina Air National Guard F-16s fly with a Colombian air force Kfir during a training flight Aug. 12 over Colombia. Nearly 100 Airmen and six F-16s from the 169th Fighter Wing at McEntire Air National Guard Base are participating in the combined air operation engagement, which is the first major joint-air engagement opportunity under the auspices of the South Carolina's State Partnership Program with Colombia. The exercise allows the U.S. and Colombian airmen to share tactics, techniques, and procedures on many subjects including defensive air operations, operations coordination and scheduling, and best maintenance practices; all of which can be applied to maritime, littoral waters, over-land areas of operations, and defense of national territory.
