F-16 fighter jets from Poland's 32nd Tactical Air Base and the South Carolina Air National Guard prepare to taxi for takeoff at Łask Air Base, Poland in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, June 5, 2015. U.S. Air Force Airmen from Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, and the South Carolina Air National Guard’s 169th Fighter Wing from McEntire Joint National Guard Base, are deployed to Łask Air Base in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, during the month of June. These training missions, called aviation detachment rotations, pair U.S. fighter pilots and maintenance crews with their Polish air force counterparts at Łask Air Base, during Operation Atlantic Resolve. This rotation, AvDet 15-3, is the first to combine guard/reserve and active-duty units in Poland to offer more diverse opportunities to share best practices and build professional relationships with the Polish air force. This bilateral training, hosted by permanently assigned USAF service members assigned to Poland, has taken place since 2012. Through strengthened relationships and engagements with our allies, the U.S. and NATO demonstrate their shared commitment to a peaceful, stable and secure Europe.
