Exercise WestPac Rumrunner III
U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagles takeoff from the runway and taxi along the flightline during Exercise WestPac Rumrunner Oct. 16, 2020, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. The 18th Wing must be ready to cooperate with regional partners, ready to compete against peer adversaries, and ready to fight tonight should there be a need to do so. By continuously exercising, the 18th Wing is able to bolster lethality and combined interoperability with partners. Exercises focus on readiness of force and optimize international engagements to build partner capacity. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Benjamin Sutton)
