More than 100 US Airmen and a contingent of F-16s from the 169th Fighter Wing, the South Carolina Air National Guard unit at McEntire ANGB deployed to Łask AB in Poland in June and July 2015 to train with the Polish Air Force's 32nd Tactical Air Wing and the US Air Force’s 480th Fighter Squadron at Spangdahlem AB, Germany in June. This month-long, bi-lateral training, called Aviation Detachment Rotation 15-3, paired 169th FW and 480th FS pilots, maintainers, and support personnel with their Polish counterparts.
