180th Fighter Wing Participates in Load Diffuser 17

An F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned to the 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard, flies over the skies of Hungary, June 6, 2017. More than 400 military members from six countries participated in exercise Load Diffuser 17 at the Hungarian Air Base from May 22 to June 9, 2017. Load Diffuser is a Hungarian Air Force-led, multinational flying exercise between NATO allies and partner nations. Multinational training engagements such as these strengthen our relationships, help us maintain joint readiness and interoperability, and reassure our European allies and partners. The U.S. and Hungary, as NATO allies, share a commitment to promote peace and stability, and seek opportunities to continue developing their relationship. The U.S. and Europe must preserve our mutual commitment and trust as we face emerging malignant forces and evolving strategic assets. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt. Beth Holliker.
