VMFA-112 participated in an inter-service exercise with Marine Aerial Refueling Squadron 234, Marine Fighter Training Squadron 401, and the Air Force’s 22nd Air Refueling Wing to conduct a long-range strike from Fort Worth to a training range in Yuma, Arizona, spanning over 1000 miles and five flight hours, while evading and maneuvering against F-5N Tiger II’s. The overall mission time, coordination with external agencies, inter-unit and service operability between fellow MAG-41 squadrons and the Air Force, and unfamiliar territory exercised the capabilities of all aircraft and pilots involved.
