Update from Buzzard 01

The squadron has spent the last year hunkered down since we’re at the epicenter of Europe’s pandemic.  I’m very proud of their discipline and dedication to mission throughout. 

Aviano Air Base is situated in the northeast of Italy, not far from what was the global hotspot of the new coronavirus outbreak.

Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, 3rd Air Force and 17th Expeditionary Air Force commander visited Airmen from the 31st Fighter Wing participating in Arctic Challenge Exercise 2015 here, June 1.

Aircrew from the 40th Flight Test Squadron recently returned from the squadron’s first-ever international deployment.

Chief Master Sergeant Chad T. Gaddy is the 510th Aircraft Maintenance Unit Superintendent, Aviano Air Base, Italy. He provides senior enlisted leadership and resource management to more than 200 maintenance personnel supporting 25 Block-40 F-16C/D Falcons valued at 950 Million dollars.

During a recent raid on a terrorist stronghold in a remote Afghan village, U.S. ground forces came under enemy fire. They called for close air support, and shortly thereafter, an F-16 Fighting Falcon dropped munitions to eliminate the threat.
