Peruvian Air Force introduced to international F-16 training wing

Lt. Gen. Norman Seip, right, the Twelfth Air Force (Air Forces Southern) commander, talks about F-16 phase maintenance with General Pedro Minaya Torres, Peruvian Air Force commanding general, in a 162nd Fighter Wing maintenance hangar at Tucson International Airport, April 1. Staff Sgt. Raul Quiroz, an aircraft maintainer at the Air Guard unit and a native of Peru, translates the conversation. Twelfth Air Force introduced General Minaya to the 162nd for its international pilot training mission. "I'm inspired by all the United States has done for its allies and I hope Peruvian Air Force pilots will one day train with U.S. pilots," said General Minaya. (Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt.
