Ramstein Hosts Ghana Air Force Exchange

Members of the Ghana air force spent two weeks in May at Ramstein AB, Germany, to learn preventive maintenance techniques that could be applied to their own aircraft back home. They were sponsored under an aviation maintenance NCO exchange program that is part of Air Forces Africa’s outreach and capacity-building activities with partner air forces on the African continent. During the visit, airmen with Ramstein’s 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron escorted the Ghanians on the flightline and through maintenance backshops to learn first-hand about US procedures for managing flight schedules, parts, logistics, and maintainer safety and training. USAF maintainers are scheduled to travel to Ghana as the second part of this exchange. (Air Force photo caption by SSgt. Stefanie Torres)
