Ample Train 2006

By Weasel, Rene Wilthof, Frits Jongerman | April 2006
Exercise at Volkel AB, The Netherlands.

The live logistics exercise Ample Train is taking place from 7 till 10 April at Volkel AB, The Netherlands.

The aim of Exercise Ample Train is to focus specifically on logistics and provide training for intensive fighter aircraft ground crew, free from the pressures of a normal air exercise. In concrete terms, ground crew personnel is being trained in duties such as refuelling, carrying out pre and post flight safety checks, and ensuring weapon safety if the aircraft is armed. These crews are also training to work with personnel from different NATO member countries with a view to improving, in the long run, interoperability between the air forces.
