Agile Innovation: 163D's MQ-9 Soaring to New Heights
May 4th marked a historic day for the 163d Attack Wing when our Multi-Capable Airmen (MCA) launched, recovered, rearmed and returned to home station, blazing the trail for the MQ-9 enterprise. Helping the 163d ATKW achieve this Agile Combat Employment (ACE) goal was the 160th Attack Squadron and the 492nd Attack Squadron. The 163d Attack Wing successfully performed an Automatic Takeoff and Landing Capability (ATLC) from March Air Reserve Base California to Edwards Air Force Base and back.
