Senior Airman Stephen Eckardt, 15th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron instrument and flight control journeyman, performs a C-17 Globemaster III pre-flight check while 535th Airlift Squadron aircrew operate controls at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, Nov. 12, 2022. Exercise Global Dexterity 2022 is being conducted at RAAF Base Amberley, and is designed to help develop the bilateral tactical airlift and airdrop capabilities of the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). Both the United States and Australia rely on the C-17A to provide strategic and tactical airlift across the Indo-Pacific region, with its ability to provide short-notice and time-critical airlift support making it essential during humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.
