‘General’ perspective: Future for U.S. airlift lies in modernization, partnerships

From left, Maj. Gen. William Bender, U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center commander, discusses the future of airlift with Lee McDowall, Royal Australian Air Force flight test engineer, and Jose Garcia Figueiredo Neto of Embraer Sociedad Anonima, at the Military Airlift event in London, Sept. 26, 2012. Key topics of discussion focused on ways to more effectively conduct military airlift operations. The general elaborated on the future of the C-130J Super-Hercules program, the KC-46 fleet and how NATO and the U.S. could ill afford to throw teamwork by the wayside. Additionally, Bender made a site visit to RAF Mildenhall’s 727th Air Mobility Squadron, a tenant unit there under his chain of command. (U.S. Air Force photo/2nd Lt Christopher Mesnard)
