Head of Information of Iswahjudi Lanud Iswahjudi Major Sus Hamdi Londong Allo said that the training of Iswahjudi Lanud area used as an exercise area includes air over Ngawi District, Magetan, Madiun up to 100 nautical miles south of Pacitan, East Java, up to 50,000 feet.

He said the exercise is part of the preparation of the 3rd Air Squadron before following the 18th Black Pitch Exercise to be held in Darwin, Australia, from July 30 to August 17, 2018.

"The 3 air Squadron that manages the F-16s will meet the Australian government's invitation through the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) to follow the 18th Pitch Black practice," Major Londong told media crews.

The 18 Pitch Black exercise, he added, is the largest multinational exercise of the Air Force on the Southern Hemisphere.

"The multinational exercise will involve the United States Air Force, Canada, Britain, France, Singapore, Thailand, India, Malaysia and Australia," he said.

Air License Commander 3 Lieutenant Colonel Gusti Made Yoga "Barong" Ambara said that the Air Squadron 3 prepared eight F-16C fighters to attend the exercise.

Lieutenant Colonel Gusti Made Yoga said that the First Air Marshal Iswahjudi Commander of the Army Samsul Rizal reminded the Air Squadron 3 airmen to prepare for the multinational combat training.

"Commander Lanud Iswahjudi will lead the apple for the departure of the Black Pitch Training 18 at the same time carrying out the final check before leaving for Darwin," he said.

Pitch Black, he said, became the presentation of the air superiority of each country. Pitch Black also became the "show force" for the main tool of the weapon system (alutsista) owned by each air force.
