MPACM is a bi-annual joint military meeting between maritime patrol and reconnaissance entities for coordinating real-world operations to ensure security, stability and safe sea traffic in the Indo-Asia Pacific area of operations.
“Meeting with members of Air Wing SIX in Pohang was an exciting opportunity to share knowledge about the P-8A, and in turn learn from them how best we can continue to mutually benefit from working together,” said Lt j.g. Steven Singleton. “We also had a great time showcasing the aircraft’s capabilities to our Korean allies during a static display of the aircraft.”
Combat Air Crew (CAC) 10 from VP-5, along with CAPT Matt Rutherford, Commander, Task Force SEVEN TWO (CTF-72), joined up with Korean Navy officials of Air Wing SIX to discuss future plans with the P-8A Poseidon aircraft and it’s strategic role in the region.
The Mad Foxes, who are based out of Jacksonville, Florida, are currently deployed to Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan. Throughout their deployment, they will be conducting maritime patrol and reconnaissance and theater outreach operations within the SEVENTH Fleet area of operations.
