RAF Mildenhall KC-135 aircraft supports Operation Juniper Micron

  • Published

The first of two KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft and approximately 50 support Airmen from the 100th Air Refueling Wing, Royal Air Force Mildenhall, U.K., have temporarily deployed to Moron Air Base, Spain, to continue support of Operation Juniper Micron. 

The U.S. Air Force has supported the French operation in Mali and North Africa since 2013.

The U.S. Air Force routinely rotates aircraft in and around the theater in support of operations and exercises and in full coordination with host nations, allies, and support partners. By supporting operations like Juniper Micron, USAFE helps strengthen the relationship the U.S. has with its ally nation, France.
