A lockdown ended at Tennessee’s McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base on Wednesday afternoon and everyone was safe after a report of a suspicious person who appeared to be armed turned out to be a misunderstanding, officials said.
The exercise, crafted by the 18th Wing, is intended to bolster joint interoperability and push airmen to employ continuous airpower using tactics stemming from the Pacific Air Force’s agile combat employment concept of operations, known as ACE.
The officials said a military airstrike targeted Abdul Reza Shahla’i, a high-ranking commander in Iran's Islamic Republican Guard Corps but the mission was not successful. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss a classified mission.
