On October 20, 2022, F-22 Raptors from the 90th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron arrived in Souda Bay, Crete to conduct an Agile Combat Employment (ACE) exercise.
The US Air Force conducts ACE exercises on a regular basis. The last ACE exercise conducted by Greece involved F-35s from the UK’s RAF Lakenheath base.
ACE exercises are part of the regular training of U.S. airmen, as part of their operations from different locations, with different levels of business capability and support, to enhance the ability to deploy, survive, operate and conduct successful maneuvers.
The US appreciates Greece’s support in hosting these aircraft in Souda Bay for the purposes of this exercise.
