​The first African Partnership Flight in Kenya kicked off June 21, with US airmen teaching counterparts from Kenya and Uganda about personnel recovery. More than 50 airmen from US Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa and the Massachusetts Air National Guard will spend 10 days teaching Kenyan and Ugandan troops in classrooms and hands-on training focused on personnel recovery, command and control, survival and evasion, and tactical combat casualty care, according to a USAFE-AFAFRICA release. The training will end with a two-day, Kenyan led personnel recovery exercise called Linda Rhino.
