Exercise Global Dexterity


Exercise Global Dexterity (1.25 mins)

In November 2019, No. 36 Squadron at RAAF Base Amberley hosted United States Air Force crews from 535th Air Lift Squadron to participate in Exercise Global Dexterity. The inter-fly exercise saw mixed RAAF and USAF C-17 Globemaster III crews maintain, load and fly the aircraft – a major milestone for both nations. Participating in ‘three-ship’ air-to-air refuelling training with RAAF KC-30 Multi-role Tanker Transport aircraft, and airdrop formations, the C-17s descended to an altitude of 100 metres at times along the Queensland coast between the Whitsundays and Noosa passing over Fraser Island and Rainbow Beach.
