The 366th Fighter Wing is located in the middle of nowhere in southern Idaho, nearly an hour away from a large city. Not exactly the description of a place one would expect military forces from every U.S. service and foreign allies would be excited to visit. In reality, Mountain Home’s 110,000 acre range provides an ideal training setting with one of the biggest air spaces in the country, and exercises like Gunfighter Flag that accommodate joint service combat training to simulate deployed situations.
