EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Members with the 33rd Fighter Wing will visit the 158th Fighter Wing to conduct training, July 12-28, at Burlington Air National Guard Base, Vermont.

Vermont offers open airspace with optimal weather conditions for flying, allowing the 33rd FW to avoid over 60% of seasonal lightning and hurricane delays.

This opportunity also enhances the Agile Combat Employment concept of the 33rd FW’s training; a concept focused on rapid mobility and lays the foundation for Airmen to fill multiple roles and make decisions efficiently in any environment.
