Nearly 20 U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft from the 480th Fighter Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, deployed Souda Bay, Greece, for bilateral training with the Hellenic air force Aug. 11-23, 2014.

The Hellenic air force is Greece's air force, and the flying training deployment includes large-force training events aimed to gauge the compatibility between the two nations with a focus on strengthening joint readiness.

"We very rarely go into combat just by ourselves, so this gives us an opportunity to go in with our NATO partners and train in the large-force exercises and see all the different moving parts that happen," said U.S. Air Force Capt. Taylor Blevins, 480th FS chief of weapons and tactics. "We gain some knowledge from our NATO partners, they gain some knowledge from us, and overall we gain some experience in airmanship working together."
