The United States Army will be conducting an airborne operation near
Flathead National Forest in Montana.
A flight plan for this operation will be provided. Distance is 385nm.
Two C-17 Globemaster IIIs and two F-16 Falcons will depart KTCM
McChord AFB on August 12th, 2017 NLT 1600 UTC. Cruise altitude will
40 nautical miles from the arrival destination, the C-17s will descend to
4000ft AGL, reduce speed <200 knots, and fly north over Flathead Lake
allowing the paratroopers to exit the aircraft. F-16s will provide security.
Friendly aircraft will land at KGPI Glacier International Airport, Montana.
An after action review will be conducted.
C-17 Globemaster IIIs will be loaded with friendly troops totalling 25500lbs
and no less than 50000lbs of fuel.
Unfortunately, we are short one C-17 and one F-16 pilot at this time. We
would appreciate any new pilots joining us.
Apologies on the short notice of this operation!
