Mobility Command Recants Rodeo Results

Air Mobility Command was forced to nullify the results of its 2011 Air Mobility Rodeo, stripping units of top honors erroneously awarded through a programming error. “There is an automated process in the scoring algorithm which improperly assigned a median score for an event,” said Maj. Gen. Frederick Martin, AMC operations director. “There was not a final check for one critical portion of the automated scoring process.” Officials re-awarded most of the competition’s highest honors after recalculating the scores of the C-130 and C-17 container delivery airdrop competition. “This scoring error should in no way detract from the incredible efforts our mobility forces put forward every day” said Martin, calling the glitch “very unfortunate.” The 314th Airlift Wing (Air Education and Training Command) at Little Rock AFB, Ark., bumped the 97th AW at Altus AFB, Okla., for top honor as Best Mobility Wing.
