In the operation that was part of Exercise Northern Edge 21 (NE21) participated US Navy, Air Force and Marine planes including several F-15EX jets.

The Northern Edge 21 that is hosted by the U.S. Pacific Air Forces started on 3rd May and it will run until 14th May.

About 15,000 US service members, six US Navy ships and 240 aircraft are involved in NE21.

NE21 is one in a series of Alaska’s Command joint training exercises that are designed to provide practical warfighter training with the highest quality.

During the flight mission, crews sought to analyze operations, techniques and procedures capacities as well as enhance interoperability among the services.

Also, the training operation improves command, control, and communication relationships and develops cooperative plans and programs among US Navy, Marine Corps Integrate and Joint Forces member crews.
