Poland confirms U.S. sending F-16 jets for training drill
The U.S. military will send 12 F-16 fighter jets and 300 service personnel to Poland next week for a training exercise whose scope was expanded in response to the crisis in neighbouring Ukraine.
The training exercise, centred on the Lask air force base in central Poland, was originally to have been smaller and involved only transport aircraft. Poland has requested it be beefed up after Russia's intervention in Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula. reuters
