Beats the garage I have at my place ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Check out this C-17's home when it's not out delivering cargo! #NoBounds #ProudToBeAMC #TTailTuesday
Thanks in part to mobility Airmen, the Advanced Extremely High Frequency-5 communications satellite launched into space Aug. 8 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Before the AEHF-5 could do its job in space, #TeamTravis transported the satellite from California to Florida April 19. Read the full story on our website.
Happy #TTail Tuesday #TeamTravis! How is everyone feeling?
Not only is TSgt one of the hardest ranks to make in the Air Force, it’s the service’s most powerful as it’s the backbone of the enlisted force and serves as the bridge between junior Airmen and SNCOs. So, #TeamTravis’ had more than one reason to celebrate at the #techselect release party today... Congrats again to everyone who was selected!
During Wing Leadership Rounds today #Airmen from the KC-10 Extender Guidance and Control unit demonstrated their jobs to base leadership. Keep our #aircraft in the sky Airmen!
One Final Flight to Honor Their Own A KC-10 Extender and crew assigned to the 6th Air Refueling Squadron with the unique call sign of Brent06 took off early Tuesday morning from Travis AFB. The call sign will only be used one time and was in honor of Maj. Brent Burklo, 6th ARS KC-10 pilot, who passed away July 10 at the age of 32 after a two-year battle with cancer. The crew flew nonstop to Texas to perform a flyover with the boom down in recognition of Brent’s service to the country as his family and friends gathered at the cemetery. @afboomoperator @usairforce @airmobilitycmd @amccommanderofficial
👇 This is how you throw down a gauntlet 👇 #TeamTravis' 60th Logistics Readiness Squadron is dropping actionable innovation like it's on fire. Their only question: "Who out there can top us?"

Ask around the 6th Air Refueling Squadron who Maj. Brent Burklo was and you’ll get a lot of answers. “A loving son.” “An amazing officer.” “A kind man.” Something they’ll all say? “Brent was a hell of a fighter.” Brent died last Wednesday after a grueling two-year battle with cancer at 32 years old. Brent was strong. Even after his diagnosis, he still showed up for work, still led his squadron lunch train to Chick-fil-a every Tuesday, still gave the same measured, impactful advice his troops had come to expect from him. Brent was a warrior. He flew 41 combat missions over Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa and made the difference in operations from 65 feet below the Earth’s surface to the far reaches of space. Brent was selfless. Even while fighting his cancer, he would still be the one to lead the charge on a problem—always the one to ask “How can I help?” He never pitied himself, never faltered, never gave an inch to his hardships. Brent Burklo was an Airman. Today, we honor him. @airmobilitycmd @usairforce @amccommanderofficial
To think we were all once as fresh-faced as these Airmen 😅 This week's First Term Airmen Center class has no shortage of personality, and the United States Air Force is all the better for it. What kind of Airman were you when you went through FTAC? Let us know in the comments! #NoBounds #MondayMotivation #SouthCarolina
#TeamTravis, It's a bird! It's a plane! It's (actually) smoke! But have no fear! This Saturday's controlled burn is in an effort to protect Travis from the risk of wildfire and is being conducted by our on-base fire department along with the Suisun Fire District , Montezuma Fire Protection District, and Wildland Fire Support Teams out of Vandenberg Air Force Base. During this time, there will be no road closures and minimal impact on the base mission. #WeGotYou
What better time than #AllAmericanPetPhotoDay to share this picture of our 60th SFS #Defenders and their #MilitaryWorkingDogs?!?!?! #MWD, and their handlers, deploy worldwide to support the #WarOnTerror and help safeguard #military bases from numerous threats.
There's just something about a sunrise and a T-Tail... Today's #TTailTuesday is brought to us by Travis' own Master Sgt. Joseph Swafford. Submit your own T-Tail photos for a chance to be featured!
When you're a member of #TeamTravis aircrew, the phrase "too many cooks in the kitchen" can most readily be translated to "too many agencies on the flight line." That's why Travis' own #PhoenixSpark has come up with a solution to a KC-10 issue that has long-plagued its aircrew. Check it out in the article below.

#TeamTravis, Happy #IndependenceDay! Just as a reminder, it is ILLEGAL to set off fireworks on base, in Vacaville and Fairfield. Safe and Sane fireworks, however, ARE legal in Dixon and Suisun City up until 10 p.m. #HappyBlasting #4thOfJuly #Murica
Happy Sunday #TeamTravis!
What’s better than meeting a living legend? Meeting *four* living legends. #TeamTravis was lucky to have a group of three welders and one draftsman from the #RosieTheRiveter era visit us yesterday to spread some genuine #WeCanDoIt vibes!
#TeamTravis Airmen from the #60MXG and @sacrepublicfc teamed up for a tour of a #C5galaxy and a quick game of soccer today. Thank you #sacrepublic for coming out! #nobounds #proudtobeMXG
Hey #TeamTravis, it's #NationalSelfieDay, so here are some selfies from 60 AMW Public Affairs' resident selfie expert, #BigLou. Now it's your turn, show us your selfies! #NoBounds #ShowMeYourSelfie #Thankyou
#ThirstyThursday mixed with a little bit of #TBT. Taking it back all the way to 2017 when we gave this big guy a little bit of go-go juice. #B52 #KC10 #NKAWTG #NoBounds #TeamTravis #mixeddrink
Rosie the Riveter women speak at Travis AFB at the base theatre, 25 June 2019 beginning 1 P.M. The event is open anyone with base access.

#RedFlag-Alaska is an exercise that happens multiple times a year. It's essentially a who's who of butt-kicking airframes, so *naturally*, our #TeamTravis KC-10s got invited to help them out on the trip. Read more about it in the article below! #NKAWTG #NoBounds https://www.travis.af.mil/News/Article/1873739/team-travis-kc-10s-escort-a-10s-f-16s-to-red-flag-alaska/fbclid/IwAR37F4YzYv7Ka9A2_3eWbeSC1pUqc9zfOOm4BHvhyIPAQXtxm1qvszIchlM/
#TeamTravis, We want to know from YOU what you want to see us post more of across our social media platforms! #NoBounds #ItTakesAVillage
Try saying this three times fast: How many #TTails could #TeamTravis T Tail if a T Tail could be T Tailed on Tuesdays? #TTailTuesday #NoBounds #C5 #22AS
Good Monday morning #TeamTravis! As the sun rises on this warm California day, it’s a good day to have a good day! #nobounds
Travis leadership: Happy #NationalDoughnutDay, #TeamTravis! Can't wait to finally have that Dunkin' on base, huh? The rest of base:
75 years ago, the U.S. military, along with other Allied nations, enacted one of the most ambitious amphibian assaults in history. Today, we celebrate the courage and sacrifice of the service members who invaded Normandy on #DDay, and whose actions still stand as one of the most impressive rebukes of evil in human memory. #BecauseOfThem
“Col. Nelson and I wanted to do a ‘Thank You’ message to all Airmen for their hard work during the awesome air show we had in March. What we quickly realized is that maybe a scripted ‘Thank You’ wasn't the best. What you see below is the ‘best’ parts of that video. BOTTOM LINE: Thank you to all #TeamTravis for putting on an amazing #airshow! - CMSgt Derek Crowder #NoBounds
Worrying if we have enough space to fit all our master sergeant selects in one picture is the kind of problem we love having! Congrats to all our soon-to-be E-7s! #TheStudentHasBecomeTheMaster #WeOutHere #NoBounds
Real talk. We love our community. And we love the community leaders that take the time out of their busy schedule to learn about global mobility. We don’t do what we do without you. Here’s to a successful 2019 Travis Civic Leader Tour to McConnell AFB! And big thanks to @22ARW for being such amazing hosts! . . . . Oh, you’re still reading? And you live in Northern California? And you’re wondering how you can get involved in base? Being an honorary commander is a great place to start!

#TeamTravis’ 21 AS @beeliners are preparing for takeoff to the Alaska Airlines Aviation Day in #seattle on May 4th! #maythefourthbewithyou
Don’t worry, not all of your feed is full of #EndGame spoilers today...just a #GameChanger augmented reality demo we showed to AMC command chief CMSgt Terrence Green during his visit here. #PoweredbySpark #NoBounds @phoenixsparktravis
Even aircraft need a vacation! A fleet of AWACS aircraft from @tinkerairforcebase arrived here today to avoid inclement weather. Enjoy the California sunshine, courtesy of #TeamTravis! #selfcare | #SpringBreak
#repost @beeliners “We received a request for two crews to support relief efforts in Mozambique on March 28 and a few days later we had those crews on a C-17 bound for Africa,” said Lt. Col. Steven Nolan, 21AS BEELiners director of operations. “We are providing #RapidGlobalMobility; the support that’s needed, at the right place and the right time.” 🐝 ———————————————————————— #BeeAwesome #BEEliners #NoBounds #TeamTravis #rapidglobalmobility #airmobilitycommand #workviews #avgeek #c17 #c17globemaster #instaaviation #stingersout
#Thatsawrap on day one of the air show. Don't worry though we have another jammed packed day of excitement tomorrow! Gates open at 9 a.m.! #TravisAirShow | #HHH | @afthunderbirds
#Repost @teamtravischief ・・・ We want to hear what is on your mind. Please join us at the Base Theater on 3 April at 1800.
Think of it as a gas station in the sky! With the KC-10 able to carry 350,000 pounds of fuel it can extend the range of aircraft to include the CV-22 Osprey. ⛽️ ✈️ ☁️
"I'm excited to showcase American Air Power at the Air Show. With acts like the Thunderbirds, F-22 Demo Team, and a Parade of Heavies, it's easy to see how the Air Force projects our values across the world and protects us at home. I grew up in Fairfield and can remember these Air Shows as a kid, so I'm happy to be part of the Travis Team honoring our Hometown Heroes and flying the KC-10s that put the Thunder Over The Bay." #LetsGo! Thank you for sharing Captain Corson. If you want to tell #TeamTravis why you're excited for Thunder Over the Bay Air Show all you have to do is #SendIt to us! #HHH | #TravisAirShow
Who else is excited to see one of the headlining acts for our air show bring the THUNDER? #HHH | #TravisAirShow
ICYMI: Last week #TeamTravis maintainers worked through the night to move a C-5M off the runway after the aircraft made an emergency landing with its nose gear up. #Airmen #aircraft #sunrise
We at #TeamTravis aren’t about to be outdone by the #10yearchallenge, so we’re raising the stakes with the #70YearChallenge.
