Maxwell A-10

Four A-10 Thunderbolt II Warthogs were at Maxwell Air Force Base supporting a joint terminal attack controller exercise being conducted near Savoy, Alabama, Jan. 21, 2015. They were working in cooperation with the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron and an AC-130H Spectre to deliver the best training possible for the JTACs in calling in strikes on the ground. The training and working relationship benefits all parties when they deploy to combat zones and have to perform the same operations against real-world targets. In addition, the A-10s are conducting flight operations within Maxwell’s flight pattern to increase the 42d Operations Support Squadron’s Air Traffic Controller training supporting A-10 aircraft mixed with the complexities of other aircraft such as the C-130 Hercules and the Cessna 182 Skyline all in Maxwell’s flight pattern at the same time. The differences in speed and size within Maxwell's airspace provides the training controllers benefit from and is solid preparation for controlling diverse aircraft in airspace of different sizes while deployed in combat zones. The A-10s came to Maxwell due to its proximity to Savoy and the training opportunities within Maxwell’s flight pattern. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman William Blankenship/Cleared)

908th Airlift Wing transports humanitarian cargo

Chief Master Sgt. Lynn Whited drives a tractor into a 908th Airlift Wing C-130 aircraft Monday that is headed for the Dominican Republic. A member of the 908th’s 25th Aerial Port Squadron, Chief Whited loaded the tractor and several other items acquired by Daystar Baptist Missions to be used for humanitarian relief in the Dominican Republic. Lt. Col. Jerry Lobb, 908th public affairs officer, said the cargo was being flown “space available” in accordance with the 1985 Denton Amendment, named after U.S. Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton of Alabama. The Denton Amendment allows nonprofit, charitable organizations access to unused cargo space on Air Force aircraft for humanitarian aid, Colonel Lobb said. He added transportation of the cargo is a “by-product” of mission training. (U.S. Air Force photo/Lt. Col. Jerry Lobb)

Maxwell dedicates veteran MH-53 to Air Park

An “old war bird” was dedicated Monday when a ceremony for Air Force Pave Low #69-5785, or 785, was held at Maxwell’s Air Park. The static display at the corner of Ash and Twining Streets commemorates the Airmen who flew the helicopters first assigned to the Air Force in 1970. Retired Chief Master Sgt. Wayne Fisk, a pararescue jumper who flew on 785 many times, told the audience about the aircraft and his association with it. On the right, Lt. Gen. Allen Peck, Air University commander, Brig. Gen. Tom Trask of Air Force Special Operations Command, Col. Kris Beasley, 42nd Air Base Wing commander, and Maj. Brian Roberts, who flew 785 on her last flight, listened to Chief Fisk’s speech.

Workers mount the rotors on a new addition to Maxwell’s Air Park. The MH-53 Pave Low helicopter is scheduled to be dedicated June 8 at the park. The aircraft comes to Maxwell from the 20th Special Operations Squadron with its last mission served in Iraq. The aircraft was involved in the May, 1975 assault on Koh Tang Island following seizure of the U.S.S. Mayaguez and its crew by Cambodian Khmet Rouge forces, and was the last helicopter to leave Cambodia as it carried out the last load of Marine guards from the American embassy in Phnom Phen in Operation Eagle Pull. It is also thought to have conducted the first operational Pave Low mission of "low-level, long-range and undetected penetration into denied areas" when it rescued a priest who crashed his light aircraft on a snow-covered mesa breaking his ankle. The park was originally proposed in February, 1982 by then Air University Commander Lt. Gen. Charles Cleveland. (U.S. Air Force photo/Jamie Pitcher)
