Runway Repair Complete

A U.S. Air Force C-130J Super Hercules waits to unload logistical supplies in support of the fight for Mosul at Qayyarah West airfield, Iraq, Oct. 22, 2016. This is the second aircraft to land there following completion of repairs to the runway after Da’esh damaged it in an attempt to disrupt Iraqi Security forces from gaining control of the area. Control of the Qayyarah West airfield has enabled the opening of an air corridor to support operations throughout northern Iraq. A Coalition of over 60 nations has formed to provide assistance and training to Iraqi forces to counter Da’esh, re-establish Iraq’s borders and re-take lost terrain thereby restoring regional stability and security.
