Joint Base Langley–Eustis will host Exercise Atlantic Trident 17 April 12 through April 28, 2017. The event will be unique with F-22 Raptors and the F-35 Lightning II from the US flying with the UK Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon, and French Air Force Dassault Rafale.

This exercise was designed to encourage the sharing and development of air combat TTPs [tactics, techniques and procedures] with our French and U.K. partners, against a range of potential threats leveraging U.S. Air Force fifth-generation capabilities,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Peter Fesler, 1st Fighter Wing commander.

“This is not only an opportunity to share the capabilities of the aircraft, pilots and maintainers between our nations, but to build friendship, trust and confidence that will improve our interoperability as we go forward.”
