A Mobile Aircraft Arresting System (MAAS) received a Kuwait Air Force F/A-18 Super Hornet at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait, July 10, 2023. This certification event was beneficial to both the U.S. and Kuwait as the MAAS was certified to provide enhanced stopping power to inbound aircraft, and the Kuwait Air Force received more experience hooking up to the system.
