Air Contingent - Clark Air Base - Philippines

U.S. Air Force Capt. Tilt Culpepper, an A-10C Thunderbolt II pilot with the 25th Fighter Squadron, Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, briefs U.S. Philippine Air Force (PAF) aircrew members on the mission of the A-10 as part of U.S. Pacific Command’s Air Contingent at Clark Air Base, Philippines, April 28, 2016. The briefing afforded PAF aircrew members an opportunity to experience how U.S. Air Force aircrew members operate the airframe. The A-10C has a mission profile consistent with the air and maritime domain awareness operations U.S. Pacific Command’s Air Contingent is conducting out of the air base, as it is capable of loitering close to the surface for extended periods to allow for excellent visibility over land and sea domains. This bilateral engagement strengthened the already close partnership between U.S. and Philippine armed forces. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
