Advanced technology gives Reserve aircraft an edge

Col Bruce Cox, 301st Operations Group vice commander, returns from an orientation flight with Ms Kate Fitzpatrick, Professional Staff Member from the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations, Washington, D.C., in the back seat. The flight included demonstrations on how the Situational Air Display Link (SADL) system works in coordination with the Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) on the ground to facilitate the terminal control of fighter aircraft ordnance employment. Ms. Fitzpatrick, and Ms. Katy Hagan, also a staffer, each received an orientation flight in the 457th Fighter Squadron's F-16, located at the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base Carswell Field, Texas, to gain a full understanding into how the Air Force Reserve Command spends it's share of the budget in regards to equipment upgrades and combat capability.
