Greek, US training ends with strengthened bonds

The two-week bilateral training between the Hellenic and U.S. air forces ended Aug. 23.

As the U.S. service members departed for their home station at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, the pilots reflected on the outcome of this peacetime training event.

"But when you combine their air force with the way our air force operates, there are some limitations. Every day we get better at that interoperability piece, and both sides have seen significant improvements in our performance."
