Citazione:31st Fighter Wing Deploys to Turkey

Last Sunday, six Block 40 F-16CM’s from Aviano Air Base‘s 31st Fighter Wing deployed to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
After a brief Local Area Orientation, the Vipers pushed south and struck ISIS targets. This marks a rapid change of direction in Turkey’s policy of not allowing US assets to mount airstrikes through sorties originating in their country. The about-face is attributable to the death of a Turkish soldier at the hands of ISIS during a cross-border skirmish in northern Syria.
There are plans to station as many as 30 warplanes at Incirlik, in addition to the approximately 300 airmen now on site. Regardless of numbers, our thoughts and prayers are with those deployed and taking the fight to ISIS.

Citazione:First Flight of Boeing's Military Tanker Delayed By A Month
Source: Reuters; published Aug 17, 2015

NEW YORK --- Boeing Co said on Monday that the first flight of its fully equipped military aerial refueling tanker would be delayed by about a month after incorrect chemicals were recently put through the plane's fuel system.
"This issue will extend the projected first flight date by roughly a month beyond the previous plan to fly (the plane) in late August, early September," Boeing spokesman Chick Ramey said in an email to Reuters.
A "fuel substitute supplied by a vendor had been labeled compliant for a particular military use, when in fact it was not," he added.
Boeing said the fuel substitute was being used to approximate the weight of actual fuel in the refueling boom.
