Airmen and Sailors Participate in Bahrain Air Show

Airmen joined Navy personnel in Bahrain to represent the United States during the second Bahrain International Air Show at Sakhir Air Base. Airmen from Air Mobility Command, Air Combat Command, and the Air National Guard made the trip, displaying the C-17, C-130H, and an F-15C. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets performed aerial demonstrations and the Navy also showed off a P-3 Orion, MH-53 Sea Dragon, and SH-60 Seahawk on static displays. “We always look forward to highlighting the great relationship we have with the Kingdom of Bahrain, one of our strongest partners in the region,” said Col. Dean Neely, Air Forces Central’s security cooperation director. “We are honored to once again get the invitation to come here and participate.” The biennial air show took place Jan 19-21.
