U.S. Air Force Capt. Brett Butler, 912th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron pilot, operates a KC-135 Stratotanker during Operation Agile Spartan above the U.S. Central Command’s area of responsibility (AOR), Aug. 19, 2023. This exercise not only highlighted AUAB’s commitment of maintaining readiness and deterrence toward adversaries in USCENTCOM’s AOR, but also the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing’s ability to rapidly generate combat airpower and engage in agile combat employment scenarios. The month-long, multinational operation demonstrated interoperability between regional partners, improved response capabilities, and further enhanced security throughout the region.
