USAF, RAF, and Armee de l’Air in Trilateral Exercise

French Armee De l’Air, Royal Air Force, and U.S. Air Force aircraft participated in an inaugural Trilateral Exercise at Langley Air Force Base Dec. 7, 2015. These images show the latest, greatest aircraft from each of the three air forces in formation together as they participate in an exercise that simulated a “highly-contested, degraded and operationally-limited environment.” Typhoons from the RAF’s 11 Squadron, Rafales from the Armee De l’Air’s SPA 162, and F-22s from the U.S. Air Force’s 27th Fighter Squadron are shown in the photos, along with a T-38 Talon “aggressor” aircraft from the 71st Fighter Training Squadron.
