33 FW supports Checkered Flag from home
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jon Peek, 58th Aircraft Maintenance Unit crew chief, reviews a checklist on his portable maintenance aid Nov. 14, 2017, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The 33 FW supported Checkered Flag 18-1, a large scale air-to-air only exercise that emphasizes the execution and production of tactics between fourth and fifth generation aircraft. In the past, the 33rd Fighter Wing deployed F-35As Lightning II to Tyndall afb to support the exercise. This year, supporting from home lessoned the strain on maintenance operations while allowing the wing's training mission to continue simultaneously. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
