US and Romanian Air Forces are participating in the annual week-long Carpathian Spring exercise, which is being held at Airlift Base Otopeni and Campia Turzii, Romania.

About 70 Airmen and Soldiers from the 37th Airlift Squadron, the 435th Contingency Response Group, the 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, the 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron and the 5th Quarter Masters Battalion will be participating in the exercise.

The annual exercise has been designed to strengthen the partnership between the forces, while enhancing individual capabilities through training scenarios.

The exercise involved low-level flying by the Romanian paratroopers and US jumpmasters through the Carpathian Mountains to Campia Turzii to perform personnel drop over a landing zone.
