Six Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Barak multirole fighters, accompanied by support and liaison aircraft as well as 180 personnel, arrived at the Tactical Air Force Wing 31 ‘Boelcke’ in Nörvenich, southwest of Cologne, for the first ever bilateral training exercise between the IAF and the Luftwaffe.

“At the invitation of the Inspector of the [German] Air Force, Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhartz, said both air forces will practice joint air operations during the first week at ‘Blue Wings’. In the second week, the Israeli partners take part in the Multinational Air Group Days (MAG Days), which take place several times a year,” the Luftwaffe said.
