The 27th Special Operations Wing at Cannon AFB, New Mexico, hosted its first Capabilities Exercise or CAPEX, on 26 June 2010 at Melrose Air Force Range to give approximately 400 Airmen and their families a better understanding of what the wing does in combat and how special operations forces and aircraft interact to accomplish its missions.  The CAPEX was a team effort by Airmen and Army Special Forces.  In the scenario, opposing forces, or OPFOR, personnel captured an Army Special Forces team. A 27th SOW AC-130H Spectre gunship crew arrived on scene to provide close-air support.
