YOUR LOOK AROUND THE AROUND THE
AIR FORCE. THE LARGEST
READINESS EXERCISE FOR AIR MOBILITY
COMMAND TO DATE, MOBILITY GUARDIAN
2019, BRINGS TOGETHER MORE THAN
4,000 SERVICEMEMBERS FROM 30 NATIONS. 46 U.S. AIRCRAFT WILL JOIN
29 AIRCRAFT FROM INTERNATIONAL
PARTNERS TO PRACTICE WORKING IN THE
CONTESTED, DEGRADED, AND OPERATIONALLY
LIMITED ENVIRONMENTS MOBILITY FORCES
FACE NOW AND IN PREPARATION
FOR THE FUTURE. THE BI-ANNUAL
EXERCISE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE
COUNTRIES AND JOINT SERVICES TO SHARE
AND LEARN FROM EACH OTHER IN A HIGH END
AIR MOBILITY FOCUSED EXERCISE. MOBILITY GUARDIAN
WILL BE HOSTED AT FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE
BASE IN SPOKANE, WASHINGTON UNTIL
SEPTEMBER 28TH. SOME NEW FEATURES
MAY BE COMING TO THE B-1B LANCER BOMBER. THE IDEA IS TO
EXPAND THE WEAPON CAPACITY TO MAKE
THE BOMBER MORE EFFICIENT SO THAT
IT CAN STRIKE MORE TARGETS, ALLOWING
MORE TO BE DONE DURING A MISSION
WITH FEWER AIRCRAFT. AIR FORCE GLOBAL
STRIKE COMMAND AND INDUSTRY PARTNERS
ATTENDED AN EXPANDED CARRIAGE
DEMONSTRATION AT EDWARDS AIR FORCE
BASE, CALIFORNIA. THE PLANS, IF
APPROVED, WILL INCREASE THE AMOUNT
OF WEAPONS THE BOMBER CAN CARRY
FROM 24 TO POTENTIALLY 40, ALSO
OPENING THE DOOR FOR THE AIRCRAFT TO
CARRY LARGER MUNITIONS, SUCH AS
HYPERSONIC WEAPONS. THE MODIFICATION IS
AN EASILY REVERSIBLE ONE, WHICH CAN TAKE
AS LITTLE AS A FEW WORK SHIFTS WITH THE
MAINTAINANCE FLIGHT. AIRMEN SHOULD BE
PREPARED FOR WHAT TO DO BEFORE, DURING,
AND AFTER A HURRICANE. A GOOD RESOURCE FOR
