A Polish Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot taxis to the runway at Lask AB, Poland, on 15 May 2013 prior to the start of a training mission with US Air Force F-16s from the 115th Fighter Wing, the Wisconsin Air National Guard unit at Madison. Nearly 100 US Airmen traveled to Lask for a two-week deployment as part of the newly established Detachment 1, 52nd Operations Group operation. Det. 1, 52nd OG is the first permanent US military presence in Poland, established recently to support Poland's continued defense modernization and standardization with the US and NATO.
