U.S. Airmen will begin Icelandic Air Policing operations at Keflavik International Airport, Iceland, May 16, which will continue until June 5.

“We are excited to be back in Iceland again for Icelandic Air Policing,” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Lendy Renegar, 48th Air Expeditionary Group commander.

“While our primary mission is to ensure the safety and integrity of Icelandic airspace, we are very excited to train with one of the best rescue organizations in the world,” he said. “The Icelandic Coast guard is incredibly capable and professional, and we are truly prepared to work with them both in training and real-world rescue opportunities.”

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
