U.S. Air Force military and honorary commanders from Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, observe a bombing demonstration from an A-10 Thunderbolt II assigned to the 47th Fighter Squadron, Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, during a tour Oct. 21, 2021, at Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field, Arizona. Luke AFB hosted an overnight event for 55 honorary commanders where they received a first-hand look at the mission of Gila Bend and the Barry M. Goldwater Range. Luke AFB’s Honorary Commander program provides an opportunity for local, regional and national community leaders to learn more about the wing’s mission and priorities as well as become empowered unofficial spokespersons for the Department of the Air Force, Airmen and Space professionals and their families.
