Master Sgt. John A. St. George, crew chief from the 140th Wing, Colorado Air National Guard, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, marshals an F-16 Fighting Falcon into position after landing at Papa Air Base, Hungary, while other crew chiefs chalk the wheels. This is the first time Colorado jets have landed in Hungary, and the first time the Colorado Air Guard has been to Europe in at more than 20 years. In support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, the 140th Wing, Colorado Air National Guard from Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, has deployed approximately 200 Airmen to Papa Air Base, Hungary, to conduct familiarization training alongside our NATO ally, Hungary. They will also participate in cross-border training with other deployed U.S. forces' aircraft and NATO aircraft in the region. This deployment continues to demonstrate our commitment to our allies and European security and stability. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt. John Rohrer)
