Total Force Airmen from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam completed a multifaceted, air combat exercise April 22, flying more than 100 sorties alongside partners from the Royal Australian Air Force and other U.S.-based units.

The exercise, Pacific Edge 21, was hosted over three weeks to provide cost-effective and realistic training, tailored to equip multinational warfighters with skills to fly, fight and win against advanced threats throughout the Indo-Pacific Region.

Mission planners from the Hawaii Air National Guard’s 199th Fighter Squadron and the active-duty 19th FS branded the new exercise Pacific Edge, representing the central convergence of partners who traveled from Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, and RAAF Base Williamtown, Australia.
