More than 300 members of the 366th Fighter Wing, an F-15E unit at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, left Monday on a five-month deployment to Kunsan AB, South Korea, as part of a normal rotation of Air Force combat forces to the Pacific. These airmen, including aircraft maintainers and aircrews and F-15Es from the wing’s 389th Fighter Squadron, replace elements of the 13th FS, an F-16 unit assigned to Misawa AB, Japan, that had been rotationally deployed to Suwon AB, South Korea.
