Juniper Stallion 13
Juniper Stallion 13 and Noble Melinda 13 were bilateral exercises held between the U.S. and Israeli air forces respectively. The exercises took place as part of regularly scheduled training between USA and Israel.
Juniper Stallion 13 was a combined, bilateral F-15/F-16 air-to-air exercise designed to improve the interoperability and cooperation between the U.S. and Israeli air forces. The exercise took place at Nevatim Air Base in southern Israel. Juniper Stallion is held annually, and JS13 was in planning for more than a year.
For this exercise, 10 ANG F-15C/Ds were transferred from New Orleans/USA to Israel. RAF Lakenheath was used as a stopover. I would like to thank 48th FW PAO for the cooperation of my photos.
