The third edition of the US Air Force Air Power Yearbook comes at a time when readiness is at the forefront of the concerns for USAF leaders. It’s a word that has many influencing factors, not least manpower — the USAF says it is short by nearly 2,000 pilots — hardware, funding, the list goes on. 

One of the ways the USAF is looking to retain and ‘absorb’ more pilots is through OA-X or light attack. This could see the USAF at long last buying a fleet of low-cost, light attack aircraft to operate in low threat environments in support of ground forces in the close air support role. 

In this 100-page 2018 yearbook we also feature the B-1B Lancers of  Ellsworth AFB, the ‘High Rollers’ of the Nevada Air National Guard and their C-130 mountain flying training school, a look at USAF contracted Red Air plans, plus the F-35A Lightning’s global presence — all of this plus a full rundown of all USAF aircraft types and units.
