Thracian Star 21 strengthens partnerships and enhances ability to rapidly deploy
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jason Anders, 31st Maintenance Squadron aircraft fuels system craftsman, teaches Bulgarian air force members hydrazine emergency response procedures on a U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned to the 555th Fighter Squadron during exercise Thracian Star 21 at Graf Ignatievo Air Base, Bulgaria, July 20, 2021. This exercise required all levels of a squadron to deploy small teams of Airmen and aircraft for a short amount of time to hone their skills. Thracian Star 21 also enhanced their ability to rapidly deploy to a remote location, establish command and control and deliver lethal airpower more effectively and efficiently anywhere in the world.
