Hugh Elliott visits NATO programme
Ambassador Hugh Elliott learned about how the programme improves both pilots’ skills and cooperation between the different NATO air forces, as well as witnessing a demonstration of two flight simulators.
HMA Hugh Elliott said: “On days like today, after the barbaric and unjustified attack by Russia on Ukraine, we are especially conscious of the importance of NATO and of being alongside our allies. I want to reiterate my Government’s condemnation of this invasion and our support for the people of Ukraine.”
“It is an honour to be here today to see first-hand the important work carried out by the armed forces from Spain, the UK and our allies to maximise collaboration in aerial missions.”
“What happens here in Albacete is an excellent example of how our armed forces prepare, train and operate together to strengthen the Atlantic Alliance’s capabilities in both current and potential missions.”
