Exercise WestPac Rumrunner III
U.S. Air Force Airmen from the 353rd Special Operations Group and 18th Logistic Readiness Squadron roll up a fuel line after refueling aircraft during forward area refueling point operations for the third iteration of Exercise WestPac Rumrunner Oct. 16, 2020, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. “Ground personnel and aircrew practiced alert scrambles and forward air refueling operations of F-15 and F-16 aircraft from C-130s, an essential part of PACAF’s focus on agile combat employment,” said Lt. Col. Craig Van Beusekom, Rumrunner 3.0 airboss and 67th Fighter Squadron commander. The FARP mission supports contingency and exercise operations to refuel aircraft and equipment in austere locations where typical air-to-air refueling or established refueling stations are not available.
