More than 250 Airmen and pilots flying fourteen F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 510th Fighter Squadron returned to Aviano AB, Italy, on 27 March after more than three weeks of training at Zaragoza AB, Spain. The purpose of the training was to build coalition partnerships with North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies and accomplish critical flight training. While in Spain, the 510th FS pilots completed air-to-air training mission against Spanish EF-18 Hornets and EF-2000 Eurofighters and performed air-to-ground missions such as basic surface attacks, close air support, and large force employment.
