Exercise Ample Train 2002
A multinational aircraft cross-servicing exercise is taking place in NATO's northern region, at Air Station Aalborg, Denmark, 29 April to 3 May. Exercise Ample Train 2002 aims to improve the ability of air force logistics personnel to work on and with each other's aircraft, therefore improving interoperability. It will involve training ground crew personnel in tasks such as refuelling, safety checks and ensuring weapon safety of armed aircraft, outside the context and pressures of a live flying exercise.
The exercise, specifically dedicated to logistical support, involves
participants from eleven NATO countries and four Partner countries. It
comes under the overall direction and coordination of the Supreme Allied
Commander Europe (SACEUR) and is being conducted by the Commander, Allied
Forces North (COMAIRNORTH), Ramstein, Germany.
