KUNSAN AIR BASE, SOUTH KOREA (AFNS)- U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Logan “Trap” Barfuss, 35th Fighter Squadron pilot and native of White Sulphur Springs, Mont. has flown a long way from home!

This Wolf Pack F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot and United States Air Force Academy alumnus is participating in the 38th iteration of Exercise Cobra Gold 2019; one of the largest and longest-running combined joint force exercises in the world. Twenty-nine countries are participating this year.

The exercise is a longstanding representation of friendship between the Thai and U.S. people.

Every time “Trap” and our Royal Thai Air Force partners take off from Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, they improve their skills, communication, and trust. Cobra Gold bolsters a strong military relationship between the Royal Thai Armed Forces and other nations.

The event takes place from Feb. 11 to 26.
