NEW YORK, April 24: The Pakistan Air Force will participate in an international mobility competition hosted by the United States Air Force’s Air Mobility Command at McChord Air Force Base, Washington, USA, in the last week of July of this year.

This event, called Air Mobility Rodeo 2007, is the USAF’s Mobility Air Force (MAF) readiness competition.

The Pakistan Air Force will participate in the Airdrop and Aeromedical Evacuation competitions, according to a press release issued from Scottsdale (Arizona).

The event focuses on improving worldwide air mobility forces’ professional core abilities.More than 100 teams and 2,500 people from 31 allied nations are expected to participate.

The last RODEO competition took place in June 2005 at McChord Air Force Base after a three-year hiatus due to the increase in the operations tempo in support of the global war on terror.

While the operations tempo remains high, Maj-Gen Scott Gray, USAF Expeditionary Center commander and RODEO 2007 commander, told reporters in Scottsdale (Arizona).
