Expanded training enables combat success

U.S Air Force Lt. Col. Bradley Turner, 86th Fighter Weapons Squadron F-35 lead evaluator, sits in an F-35A Lightning II prior to participating in an expanded Lightning Top Off Course Jan. 29, 2018, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The expanded LiTOC is a first of its kind joint interagency exercise created to ensure student F-35A pilots are prepared to meet the demands of the Combat Air Forces. It shortens the timeline of getting pilots mission qualified without sacrificing quality training during a time when pilot shortages are being felt across the Air Force.
