Operation Snowbird Continues at DM
Two more snowbird squadrons are schedule to visit Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona for training over the next few months. The squadrons and dates are as follows:
April 6, 2014 through April 18, 2014 – 12 F-16’s from the Texas Air National Guard
April 23, 2014 through May 17, 2014 – 10 A-10’s from the Michigan Air National Guard
During Operation Snowbird, Davis-Monthan AFB hosts squadrons that are based in locations that can have winter climates that are not ideal for flying. Operation Snowbird gives participating squadrons a chance to fly under the more ideal weather conditions of Arizona, while taking advantage of Davis-Monthan AFB’s close proximity to gunnery and bombing ranges.
