Air Force Africa Gets Down to the Business of Building Continental Ties

About this Podcast...

Defence IQ had the opportunity to discuss a critical component of the AFRICOM (US Africa Command) mission with USAF Major Andrei Mitran - and that component is air mobility. Major Mitran is Chief of the Air Refueling Control Team within the 617th Air Operations Command and he describes how tankers are supporting a broader range of continental needs - whether that is medical evacuation, airlift or logistics support. How do US forces benefit from building African synergy and a self-supporting capacity and why is this important to the US military? Major Mitran gives us some pretty enlightening answers.
