U.S. Airmen assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing conducted a readiness exercise at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, RAF Fairford and Souda Bay, Greece, Nov. 1-4.

During exercise Castle Forge, Airmen provided air refueling support for U.S. and allied aircraft, including U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer, MC-130J Commando II and Norwegian air force F-35A Lightning II aircraft. Castle Forge encompasses the USAFE-wide Agile Combat Employment capstone event, which will better enable forces to quickly disperse and continue to deliver air power from locations with varying levels of capacity and support, ensuring Airmen are always ready to respond to potential threats.
