Ramstein C-130s Arrive in Poland

Three C-130s from the 86th Airlift Wing at Ramstein AB, Germany, deployed to Powidz AB, Poland, July 1 through Aug. 31 for bilateral training with the Polish air force. The 37th Airlift Squadron has participated in similar training scenarios with Poland twice a year since 2012, according to a July 1 release. The aircraft arrived one day after the last of the F-16s previously deployed to nearby Lask AB, Poland, returned home to Spangdahlem AB, Germany, US Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa boss Gen. Frank Gorenc told Air Force Magazine on Monday. “We can go heal-to-toe if necessary. That’s part of our plan [in Poland] for the immediate future and that’s kind of the way we are looking at it for now,” he said. “We’re still continuing to work on that plan and we’ll adjust that plan as necessary to address the conditions set out by [US European Command] and NATO.”
