Typhoon and Mirage Ensemble above Northern England

Exercise Capable Eagle is the air component of Exercise Joint Warrior, a twice yearly, multinational, tri-service military exercise - one of the biggest of its kind in Europe.This year is the first time it has been led by a joint team of French and British air commanders, a move that paves the way to continued cooperation and training at a strategic level.

The new JOINT WARRIOR exercise involved the air component with a combined RAF/FAF endeavour from the headquarters level (Joint Forces Air Component HQ at High Wycombe) down to the Expeditionary Air Wing at RAF Leeming where RAF and FAF sqns operated (Typhoon and Mirage). 

Tackling terrorism, maritime piracy and cross-border insurgency are a few of the challenges faced by the air wing.  More in English & in French
