Airmen, Chilean school 'partner' to teach children aviation

Col. Duncan Silva, Chilean air force director of public affairs, demonstrates model building Oct. 27 to Chilean children during an afterschool science program. The Chilean air force teamed up with members of Air Forces Southern, U.S. Embassy and Military Group, along with civilian volunteers from the Santa Clara, Calif.-based technology firm Agilent Technologies. The event is part of community outreach efforts complementing Operation Southern Partner, an AFSOUTH-led event aimed at providing intensive, periodic subject matter exchanges with partner nations in the U.S. Southern Command area of focus. The all-new program features more than 70 U.S. Air Force subject matter experts from about 25 career fields working alongside partner nation military members in similar career specialties during week-long exchanges.
