ALTUS AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. --
Fifth-grade students from Altus Intermediate School, Navajo Elementary School and Altus Christian Academy visited Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, April 29, 2020. During their visit, the students learned about the aircraft here and the role the Air Force’s “Community of Choice” has in rapid global mobility. After learning about the 97th Air Mobility Wing mission, they observed a K-9 demonstration from the 97th Security Forces Squadron at the Wings of Freedom Park. Afterward, the students visited three static displays of the C-17 Globemaster III, KC-46 Pegasus and KC-135 Stratotanker.
