U.S. departs Aero India, leaves stronger relationships behind
U.S. Air Force's Pacific Air Forces Demonstration Team pilot Maj. Richard Smeeding, 35th Fighter Wing, Misawa Air Base, Japan, prepares to taxi prior to an aerial performance during Aero India 2017 at Air Force Station Yelahanka Feb. 16, 2017. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack and provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations. The United States participates in air shows and other regional events to demonstrate its commitment to the security of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, promote the standardization and interoperability of equipment, and display capabilities critical to the success of current and future military operations.
