Seeing the big picture
OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM – Two Westover pilots are deployed to the Combined Air Operations Center at an air base on the Arabian Peninsula, where they monitor the status of ongoing missions supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. The CAOC was the nerve center for all U.S. Central Command air operations when the first air strike occurred early March 20, 2003. Cruise-missile attacks and the start of massive air operations with thousands of sorties a day followed this opening strike. By May 2, major combat was over and the stabilization phase of the operation began. (Photo by Ministry of Defence-Royal Air Force Sgt. Gareth Davies)
