American, Israeli, and Greek airmen are training together in Greece as part of INIOHOS, an international exercise to enhance interoperability, capabilities, and skills. About 260 airmen from the 48th Fighter Wing, RAF Lakenheath, England, as well as 12 F-15E Strike Eagles from the 492nd Fighter Squadron, are participating in the training exercise at Andravida AB, Greece, according to a Lakenheath release. The exercise allows the partners to work on operational skills, as well as promote peace and stability, said Lt. Col. Matthew Hund, commander of the 492nd Fighter Squadron, in the release. “We get to look at specific training that meets our needs for the United States, but we also get to train with our allies. Any time we have the chance to get better, to learn from and teach our allies, is a great opportunity.” The Hellenic Air Force organized the first INIOHOS in 1988, but this is the first year the 492nd Fighter Squadron has participated in the exercise.
