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.

Default Air Force Logo Gunfighter Priority #1: Generate F-15 Sorties
When I established our number one priority for the 366th Fighter Wing, I could have said "Fly Fighters!" It's bold and looks great on a bumper sticker. I think it falls far short of the real story. After all, military and civilian organizations all over the world fly fighters. What makes us different...what makes us better: Gunfighters Generate F-15 Sorties.
