    Two pilots and three maintainers from the Polish Air Force visited the 115th Fighter Wing, May 2-8, as part of joint State Partnership Program with Illinois Air National Guard.


    Poland is partnered with the Illinois ANG, but because the Illinois unit no longer maintains the Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon airframe and requests from the Polish Air Force senior leadership, they have included the Wisconsin unit in their partnership plans.


    "Illinois partnering with Wisconsin for state partnership activity with Poland began in 2014," said Maj. Douglas Coop, Joint Force Headquarters-Illinois SPP director. "They expressed interest in future cooperation with regard to the F-16 airframe and although the Illinois [ANG] no longer possessed this capability, our neighbor directly to the north did have the F-16 capability."
