MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho — Members of the 149th Fighter Wing at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland have been taking part in Operation Coronet Bronco at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho for several weeks.

The annual training event deploys members of the 149th Fighter Wing, headquartered at JBSA-Lackland, to another environment in order to familiarize them with accomplishing mission objectives in an unfamiliar location.

This deployment exercise is a capstone event for the Texas Air National Guard’s Gunfighter student fighter pilots and evaluates their knowledge and skills before they graduate and proceed to the next phase of their training.

The exercise also incorporates many of the home unit’s support personnel, which includes members from maintenance, weapons, logistics, communication, finance and other various other shops.
