CRG enables strategic air operations at Qayyarah West
An Iraqi air force C-130J Super Hercules prepares to taxi after offloading troops at Qayyarah West Airfield, Iraq, Nov. 17, 2016. The airfield was recaptured from Da'esh by Iraqi forces in July 2016, and has been refurbished by Coalition engineers to allow recommencement of air operations. Qayyarah West Airfield is now a vital logistical hub, opening an air corridor in support of the battle to liberate Mosul as well as operations throughout northern Iraq.
