AirForces Monthly from May 2016

English | 116 pages | True PDF | 27 MB

In the May issue of AirForces Monthly (AFM) we look at the how British pilots are learning to operate the F-35B Joint Strike Fighter at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina.

A FREE 16-page Supplement examines the USAF’s Global Strike Command and its mighty fleet of B-52, B-1s and stealthy B-2s. Tom Kaminski describes the aircraft, units, missions and procedures of this nuclear-capable strike force.

Our Force Report examines the Italian Air Force as it attempts to balance its budget with the need to operate the latest high-end equipment. Riccardo Niccoli looks at how the force is managing.

Regular AFM contributor Joe Copalman examines how the USMC is evolving its Legacy Hornet fleet to operate alongside the incoming Joint Strike Fighter.

Our exclusive Exercise Report looks at Falcon Strike 2015, when Thai and Chinese fighters conducted their first joint exercise – details are only now just emerging.

The Flanker has become the backbone of Russia’s long-range fighter force, but the aircraft is much more than this as Alexander Mladenov reports. The Su-30 Flanker is a true multi-role platform that will be in production until at least 2020.

Alan Warnes brings the first of a three-part report on European Fighter Fleets, the countries, the units, the numbers and operations.

Our editorial comment this month asks, if it’s time for Europe’s air forces to purchase more aerial tankers, rather then relying on USAF squadrons to plug the gap.

As always, AFM’s Dave Allport brings you the latest military aviation news from around the world.
