The 48th Fighter Wing, 100th Air Refueling Wing, 352nd Special Operations Wing and 501st Combat Support Wing will take part in a two day "readiness exercise" from February 11 to February 13.
Aircraft will be taking off and landing throughout this time, flying to base across the North Sea.

"These types of training exercises are necessary to ensure our Airmen maintain a level of readiness to support and defend our nation, the United Kingdom and our allies."
