Thracian Star 2012

GRAF IGNATIEVO AIR FORCE BASE, Bulgaria -- Aircraft maintainers from the Bulgarian and U.S. Air Forces received a better understanding of the F-16, MiG-21 and MiG-29 aircraft maintenance processes during Thracian Star 2012 here April 26. The integration of aircraft maintenance between U.S. and Bulgarian Airmen is just one part of Thracian Star 2012, a month-long training exercise aimed to build partnership and interoperability between the two nations. During the hands-on discussions, Airmen from the 31st Fighter Wing, Aviano Air Base, Italy, deployed to Bulgaria as part of the exercise and their NATO allies learned how to better communicate and combine their strengths.
