MADSION, Wis. — Airmen from the Wisconsin Air National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing deployed Thursday (Aug. 27) in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve at Łask Air Base, Poland.

The 115th Fighter Wing is participating in bilateral training with the Polish Air Force during Air Force Aviation Detachment rotation 15-4. During the deployment, a contingent of F-16s and more than 100 Airmen will conduct training and focus on maintaining joint readiness while building interoperability capabilities with NATO allies.

“The deployment gives our pilots and support personnel the opportunity to integrate with other USAF assets as well as train alongside the Polish Air Force," said Col. Jeffrey Wiegand, 115th Fighter Wing commander. “Our continuing contributions to develop and improve air readiness are significant in maintaining security and building a partnership with Poland.”

This bilateral training, held by U.S. Air Forces Europe, has taken place since 2012. The 115th Fighter Wing last participated in a rotation in 2013. Since the last rotation the 115th Fighter Wing has worked with the Polish Air Force as part of the State Partnership Program sharing F-16 Fighting Falcon, flying and maintenance expertise.
