'Today's Air Force' features Airmen working in a joint environment

  • Published
This edition of "Today's Air Force" highlights how U.S. aircraft were put on display in Paris and Southwest Asia, how Airmen are training around the world in both joint and combined environments, and how several fitness tips can help Airmen stay healthy this summer.

Showcasing Air Force aircraft around the world allows civilians and servicemembers from around the world the opportunity to see our capabilities. 

A few aircraft were put on display during the Paris Air Show, while 379th Air Expeditionary Wing officials put on a "Flightline Fest" on the base's flightline in Southwest Asia to give all servicemembers an up close look at flightline operations.

With Airmen constantly training in both joint and combined environments, survival, evasion, resistance and escape training has gone urban. Exercise Northern Edge is going on at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, bringing together thousands of U.S. servicemembers from around the world. Loyal Arrow 2009 took place in Sweden recently, bringing together representatives from 10 NATO nations.

Also featured is a look at some fitness tips. Upcoming fitness program changes means many Airmen will be hitting the track, so "Today's Air Force" is highlighting the importance of hydration and choosing supplements wisely.

The 30-minute, weekly news show can be seen every day on The Pentagon Channel, American Forces Radio and Television Service stations around the world, and is available via podcast at http://www.af.mil/library/podcast.asp. The show also airs on more than 140 public cable-access stations within the United States.
