U.S. departs Aero India, leaves stronger relationships behind

A U.S. Air Force F-16 performs an aerial maneuver as part of the F-16 Aerial Demonstration Team during the opening ceremonies of Aero India 2017 at Air Force Station Yelahanka, India Feb. 14. In addition to the F-16, the U.S Department of Defense supported Aero India with a U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon and a U.S. Air Force C-130 J Super Hercules, which supported a joint U.S. and Indian Air Force parachute jump later in the week. 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. 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. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Mark Lazane)
