Super Tucanos Participate in Combined Exercise out of Brazil for the First Time

first_imgBy Marcos Ommati/Diálogo June 19, 2019 Six A-29 aircraft of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB, in Portuguese) flew from Brazil to the U.S. West Coast to participate in aerial exercise Green Flag-West. The aircraft, known as Super Tucanos, flew twice a day during the May 31-June 14 exercise departing from Nellis Air Force Base, just 15 miles away from the famous Las Vegas Strip. The destination was Fort Irwin, in the Mojave Desert, California, where a correlated exercise was held simultaneously. Through Green Flag, Brazil aimed to train and update the doctrine of FAB service members through operational and experience exchange with the air forces of other countries. FAB also sought to update tactics, techniques, processes, and doctrine in joint solo-air missions, according to Brazilian Air Force Major João Paulo Gomez Lima da Silva, commander of the Brazilian mission in the U.S. During the exercise, Super Tucano Brazilian pilots carried out Close Air Support missions, while service members of the Brazilian Airborne Rescue Squadron carried out Forward Air Control missions to support U.S. Army forces at Fort Irwin. Super Tucanos This was the first time that the A-29 aircraft participated in a combined exercise outside Brazil. “We did a lot of preparation and coordination; we have been working hard on getting the Brazilians here for well over a year, but it was all worth it. The results are excellent,” said U.S. Air Force Major Kelsey Finley, an Air Forces Southern officer dedicated to matters related to Brazil. This was the first time FAB participated in Green Flag. “It’s important to highlight that after World War II, this was Brazil’s first opportunity to participate in combined training with USAF [U.S. Air Force] in missions to support U.S. Army troops,” said Maj. João. The Super Tucanos conducted Close Air Support, assisting U.S. Army troops on the ground to contain and neutralize threats that could prevent battlefront advances. “Nowadays this is not that uncommon, as this mission is often carried out by the A-10. The FAB’s A-29 squadrons already served this purpose, however we are in the process of updating the doctrine for current scenarios and modernizing the equipment,” the Brazilian officer said. Green Flag Green Flag is a realistic integration training of air-ground combat involving U.S. and partner nations’ air forces. The exercise, primarily carried out jointly with the U.S. Army Combat Training Center at Fort Irwin, is conducted several times a year. The U.S. Air Force Warfare Center and Nellis Air Force Base, through the 549th Combat Training Squadron (CTS 549th) oversee the joint air support training exercise. During the exercise, members of the Green Flag team guide, monitor, and instruct visiting units in air operations in support of ground forces. To assist in this effort, CTS 549th maintains a group of specialists qualified in air-ground missions who fly with visiting squadrons during most of the exercises. When troops aren’t actively flying, they supervise and guarantee a high level of integration between air and ground forces. On average, 75,000 service members from the U.S. military, including the National Guard and reservists, participate in two Green Flag exercises each year, adding to more than 6,000 flight hours and using about 700 tons of explosives. Air forces from other countries participate in one or more similar coalition exercises in the United States. “Green Flag occurs several times a year. Because this is the first contact, we need to process all acquired knowledge, update our Close Air Support doctrine, then evaluate conditions for new participation,” said Maj. João, about FAB’s future participation in the exercise. For the exercise, Brazil sent 70 service members — most are members of the squadrons that fly FAB’s A-29. Units of the Brazilian Airborne Rescue Squadron participated as the Joint Terminal Attack Controller, regulating aircraft for attacks in support of ground forces. “The Brazilians made a significant contribution, showing that it’s possible for an aircraft such as the A-29 to fulfill these kinds of missions in a complex scenario, generating synergy between low/medium performance aircraft and troops on the ground,” said Maj. João.last_img read more

Thirty years after its closing, Eppy relaunched it as a posh supper club called My Father’s Place at The Roslyn Hotel in 2017.The team behind the movie is Director and Producer Meshakai Wolf, Cinematographer and Co-director Zac Nicholson, Producers Eric Weil and Raymond Schillinger, Associate Producer Jonah Koplin, Editor Sam Reiss, and Animator Whitney Theis.

The Ghana international has emerged as a key component of Diego Simeone’s combative side but is at loggerheads with his club over a new contract. Partey has already rejected one offer from the Spanish club and his current deal still includes a £47million release clause. Arsenal have been heavily reliant on the likes of Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi in central midfield this season and Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster that area of his squad. Juventus acquired Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey on free transfers last summer but neither player has fully adjusted to the demands of Maurizio Sarri’s style, while the former Chelsea manager dispensed with Emre Can in January and is on the lookout for midfield reinforcements.

House prices making fast recovery in wake of election: CoreLogic

first_imgThe recovery in home values nationally is being driven by Melbourne.There was a bounce in sales across eastern seaboard housing markets last week and over the weekend, with buyers and sellers more confident in the wake of the re-election of the Coalition government and APRA’s moves to make the cost of borrowing cheaper.CoreLogic senior research analyst Cameron Kusher said the end of threats to changes to negative gearing and capital gains tax, along with APRA’s move to lower hurdles to getting first-home loans and the likelihood of an interest-rate cut, were contributing to the recovery.

Judge rejects charges against drunk mother

first_imgDominion Post 10 June 2013A grossly drunk mother whose two young boys had to be rescued by neighbours from their smouldering bedroom, has had charges of failing to protect them dismissed by a judge.Judge Stephen Harrop said the woman, who had collapsed drunk in the street, was negligent and had placed herself and her children at significant risk from an overturned heater.But he said police had failed to prove that she had not taken reasonable steps to prevent injury to the children.She faced two charges under new provisions in the Crimes Act that could have seen her face a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.The judge, in Wellington District Court, said the new law was in response to concerns about serious violence to children.“However, it may capture minor breaches if the gross negligence threshold has been reached.”The court heard that neighbours had to intervene three times in July last year, finally removing the two small boys from the house.The first time they found the woman grossly drunk and collapsed in the street. Shortly after helping her inside, they could smell smoke and found a heater had overturned in the boys’ bedroom and the carpet was smouldering. They put it out but left the boys there with her.The third time, they heard them calling out and found the woman sitting in the hallway with the scared boys in her arms.She was also charged with obstruction of police after an officer went into the house.The judge said her behaviour was a major departure from the standard of care to be expected of a reasonable person, but it did not breach the Crimes Act.http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/8775022/Judge-rejects-charges-against-drunk-motherlast_img read more
