F-15Es of the 494th Fighter Squadron at RAF Lakenheath, England, pounded simulated targets on the Italian island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean, giving NATO joint terminal attack controller trainees their first experience handling live aircraft during a two-week field training exercise sponsored by US Air Forces in Europe's Air Ground Operations School in early 2011. Here, JTAC students survey a small Sardinian village for signs of enemy activity during the exercise, Feb. 1, 2011.
