US and Australian crew have conducted bilateral flying operations during Exercise Diamond Storm, the US INDOPACOM announced on 24 May.

The US Air National Guard’s 194th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, of Fresno, California, teamed up with the several units from the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) to conduct the training. Diamond Storm is an Australian Air Warfare Center-led exercise designed to enhance interoperability amongst allies and facilitate the introduction of fifth-generation capabilities into the Australian Defence Force.

This exercise, the last of a three-part series, is also a certifying criteria of the Air Warfare Instructor Course for the RAAF. The US Air Force and RAAF want to continue to build on the benefits of this exercise through the Enhanced Air Cooperation initiative and conduct more frequent training together in order to aid in future integration efforts.
