The US Air Force’s F-15E Strike Eagle tactical fighter aircraft from the 336th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Wing, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina, have arrived in Europe.
A squadron of F-15E Strike Eagles, airmen, and related equipment have been deployed to Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany.
The rotational deployment will include theatre familiarisation and training with allies, partners, and other US Air Force aircraft in Europe.
In a statement, US Air Forces in Europe and US Air Forces Africa said: “US Air Forces in Europe’s forward-based posture demonstrates to allies and partners our continued commitment to defending mutual interests.
“We regularly incorporate rotational forces that complement Nato rotations and European-based US forces in order to deter threats from Russia or other malign actors, and to improve interoperability with our allies and partners.”
