Greek F-16s in exercise on Cyprus (vid)

Three Greek F16s flew on the morning of Thursday, October 17, to Kalo Horio Larnaca, as part of a planned exercise by the National Guard. In the Regular troop training drill, called “Steel Arrow”, paratroopers dropped from a C-130 transport aircraft.

Virtual target attacks took place during the exercise and, according to Cyprus state broadcaster RIK, the F16s crossed three times over the exercise grounds. During the exercise, Mi35 helicopters fired rockets, used anti-tank weapons, and machine guns. For security reasons the F16 did not use live fire.

Here is the video from the morning broadcast of Cypriot state television, which featured footage of the exercise alongside a political panel.
