The U.S. Air Force is one of the most formidable forces that human kind has ever seen. It’s widely credited with having provided the U.S. and its allies the degree of air superiority known as air supremacy. The U.S. Air Force has allowed the U.S. and its allies to maintain complete control of air warfare and airpower. Opposing air forces are simply incapable of effective interference or resistance and it’s an incredibly powerful advantage. No country has won a war in the face of enemy air superiority.
Nonetheless, as incredible and powerful as the U.S. Air Force is, their planes go down once in awhile. When that happens, pilots need to rest confident in a forceful and immediate action to rescue them. That’s why effective combat rescue operations are as important as our ability to shoot the enemy out of the skies. Enter the boys of the 305th Rescue Squadron. The 305th Rescue Squadron is part of the 943rd Rescue Group, a reserve component of the U.S. Air Force which is stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona. When mobilized, the 943rd is tasked to support combat rescue operations under control of the Air Combat Command. May I say an extremely important, albeit little known, part of the U.S. air supremacy.
Do you think that the air supremacy presently enjoyed by the U.S. is responsible for the present long-lasting period of peace? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
