Published in Code One Magazine

US Airmen from the 510th Fighter Squadron at Aviano AB, Italy, carried out joint F-16 training with their counterparts from Lask AB, Poland, on 26 July 2013. This is third in a series of regularly scheduled two-week rotations of US Airman and aircraft to Poland. The training is designed to simulate a realistic wartime operating environment between the US and Polish air forces. The training flight scenarios become more complex as the training continues throughout the week. To complete the more advanced objectives, the allied force must work seamlessly while airborne. The US aviation detachment to Poland was activated in 2012.
