Israel, US air force hold first-of-kind aerial drill,fl_lossy/t_JD_A...

Israeli Air Force pilots flew alongside their counterparts from the United States Air Force Central Command (AFCENT) in the first-of-a-kind aerial drill on Tuesday.

Dubbed “Desert Eagle,” the drill was led by the IAF’s 133rd Knights of the Twin Tail Squadron flying F-15s, along with the USAF’s 494th Squadron. Jets from the 115th Flying Dragon Squadron simulated enemy jets.


The historic cooperation between the Israel Air Force and AFCENT Command is part of the tightening of strategic and long-term cooperation between Israel and the United States.”


Israel was moved from EUCOM (European Command that currently focuses on Russia and its threats against Europe and NATO) to CENTCOM’s area of responsibility in January.
