12 Aviano F-16s, support personnel arrive in Poland

3/17/2014 – LASK AIR BASE, Poland — At the invitation of the government of Poland, twelve 555th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcons and approximately 200 personnel assigned to the 31st Fighter Wing at Aviano Air Base, Italy, arrived at the U.S. Air Force Aviation Detachment here, March 14-15.

Over the next several days, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and the Polish Air Force will be conducting an off site bi-lateral training event that demonstrates the U.S.’s commitment to collective defense responsibilities under NATO’s objectives.

“One of our objectives is to develop bonds so if something happens, and we have to take action in a real-world environment, you want to have trained together in advance,” said Lt. Col. John Peterson, 555th Fighter Squadron commander. “You want to develop those tactics, techniques and procedures before you’re in a combat environment.”
