149th Fighter Wing takes part in Coronet Cactus

By Staff Sgt. Derek Davis 149th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

Coronet Cactus, an annual training event, took members of the 149th Fighter Wing, headquartered at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, to Arizona to participate in a simulated deployment that acts as a capstone project for the current iteration of F-16 student pilots Feb. 24.

The unfamiliar environment helps to provide more realistic combat experience for the students as various other members of the wing also support the students by maintaining and expediting mobility for the exercise.
