  • 721st AMXS aids the mission in Kuwait

    One of the keys to mission success in the Air Force is readiness. Unfortunately, equipment or machinery don’t always make that easy. When an aircraft breaks down or malfunctions at a base or area that isn’t equipped to fix the problem, what can be done? Within the European, Central and African commands (EUCOM, CENTCOM, AFRICOM), the answer to that question is sending a mission ready team (MRT), often manned by Airmen assigned to the 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. Four 721st AMXS Airmen experienced this first hand when they participated in an MRT for an engine change of a C-17 Globemaster III from Sept. 2 to 9, 2016 at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait. There were only two maintenance Airmen assigned to Ali Al Salem, so they required assistance from the 721st AMXS Airmen.
