RIYADH: A joint training exercise between the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) and the Hellenic Air Force came to an end at the King Faisal Air Base in Tabuk on Thursday.
Several intense sorties using F-15C aircraft by the RSAF and F-16 by the Greek Air Force took place, and the two-week long exercise called Falcon Eye 2 included offensive and defensive tactical counter operations, air support operations and air manoeuvres.
The commander of the King Faisal Air Base Major General Nasser bin Saeed Al-Qahtani confirmed that the exercise had achieved its desired goals including deepening cooperation between the two countries, exchanging experiences between the RSAF and Greece’s air force, raising the level of combat readiness and refining and developing the skills of participants.
Major General Al-Qahtani added that the presence of the Chief of the Hellenic national defence general staff and the deputy commander of the air force during the exercise highlighted its importance.
