Maj. Gen. Bradley Spacy, commander of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center, visited Hurlburt Field, Fla., Dec. 14, 2016. Spacy observed capability demonstrations such as the 1st Special Operations Logistics Readiness Squadron conducting a Forward Air Refueling Point. FARP first came about after the 1980 Iran hostage rescue attempt. After this event, the Air Force realized the need for a highly-efficient way to transfer fuel from one aircraft to another, in non-standard and hostile environments.
