This was impressively demonstrated by a joint jet formation flying past the former Dachau concentration camp.

In the further course of the Blue Wings exercise, Israeli and German fighter jets took off daily from Nörvenich Air Base for joint training flights.

Blue Wings 2020

It's a historic event. 75 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the Israeli Air Force comes to Germany. For the first time in history, combat aircraft with the Star of David train together with German Eurofighters in Germany.

In the first week, joint aerial operations are practiced in the bi-national exercise “Blue Wings”, and in the second week , they take part in the “Multinational Air Group Days”. Another milestone in the close cooperation between the two countries.
