Air Force shows Colorado Guard F-16s in Jordan

Senior Master Sgt. John P. Rohrer

This week the Air Force posted some interesting photos of the Colorado Air National Guard’s 140th Fighter Wing in action, training alongside Jordanian F-16s and U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18s for exercise Eager Lion.

The F-16s were deployed for the training, which wrapped up last week. The Jordanian government requested that the F-16s stay due to the civil war in Syria. The Air Force says that the training is focused “on missions the United States and its coalition partners might perform in support of global contingency operations.”
