Noble Arrow 16 Exercise Concludes

F15-E Strike Eagles from the 492nd Fighter Squadron returned to RAF Lakenheath, England, on Oct. 20 at the conclusion of exercise Noble Arrow 16. About 30 US airmen supported the joint exercise between NATO allies UK and Portugal, which began on Oct. 8 and included air-to-air, air-to-surface, and air-to-sea scenarios. “The US and NATO mutually share and value the principles of security, stability, and democracy for all alliance citizens in North America and Europe,” a pilot from the 492nd FS said, according to a press release. “This showcases the steadfast commitment the US has for its transatlantic partnership and maintaining our common defense.”
