EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska -- An F-16D Fighting Falcon from the 18th Fighter Squadron, 354th Fighter Wing, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, flies in formation with a KC-135E Stratotanker from the 108th Air Refueling Squadron, 126th Air Refueling Wing, Illinois Air National Guard, Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, during a refueling mission over Alaska on June 11 2004 in support of exercise Northern Edge 04. 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. The KC-135 Stratotanker's principal mission is air refueling. This unique asset greatly enhances the USAF's capability to accomplish its primary missions of Global Reach and Global Power. It also provides aerial refueling support to Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps aircraft as well as those of allied nations. Northern Edge is Alaska's annual joint training exercise designed to enhance interoperability among the services by sharpening and honing joint service techniques and procedures. It helps provide a ready force capable of protecting America's interests at home and abroad. More than 9,000 Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen from active duty, Reserve, and National Guard units are participating in this year's exercise, which runs through 16 June.
