Muscle building in front of Putin: US establishes first evasive base in continental Europe

First permanent base of US Air Force F-35s in continental Europe: Four F-35s landed this week at the British Air Force in Lycahealth, and will be joined by another 20 aircraft that will form the first permanent US evasive base in Europe.

The U.S. Air Force announced that the preparation of the base in the UK took six years, and this base was chosen because of the close ties between the air forces of the two countries and is compatible with the infrastructure and training of the two air forces operating F-35 aircraft.

“The UK is an essential component in maintaining operational air preparedness in Europe,” the Air Force announced.

General Jeffrey L. Harrigian, commander of the U.S. Air Force in Europe and Africa, said that the Vulcira Squadron, as the 495 Stealth Squadron was called, was leading the military and air integration in Europe. “From now on we are joining a European coalition,” said General Harrigian.
