On 25 April 22, XXIV Squadron successfully trained the first frontline Atlas crews in unpaved runway operations, operating from Geronimo Temporary Landing Zone in Louisiana, USA.

Pilots from Nos. 30 and LXX Squadron, were able to capitalise on the excellent training facilities at the Fort Polk Joint Readiness Training Centre as part of Exercise Tenax Puma, allowing pilots and crewman to hone a vital operational skillset. This success forms part of a wider Air Mobility Force exercise that will see A400M Atlas crews operate alongside C-17 Globemaster crews of No. 99 Squadron in a week focused towards shared learning and capability development.
