Peterson hosts high-altitude training for Afghan pilots, 81st FS

Two pilots from the 81st Fighter Squadron out of Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, and an Afghan pilot walk to several A-29B Super Tucanos to prepare for high-altitude training Sept. 16, 2015, at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. Four Afghan pilots have been training with the 81st FS on the aircraft since January in Georgia and came to Peterson to experience high-altitude and mountainous terrain. After completing their training in the U.S., both the American and Afghan pilots will go to Afghanistan to help establish fighter squadrons. The 81st FS is a component of the 14th Flying Training Wing, Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi, under AETC. (U.S Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Rose Gudex)
