US jet fighters to take part in joint drill.

US Air Force jet fighters yesterday landed at Isa Airbase to take part in the 2012 Basic Liaison Drill, being organised by Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) from Sunday to April 18.

This is part of periodic training exercises the BDF has been organising for 25 years with the participation of air force from friendly countries, including the US as a permanent participant since the exercise was first launched.

The drill includes joint exercises among participants to consolidate co-operation in maintaining security and stability in the Gulf.

This year's participation is considered the biggest since 1988, where more than 100 jet fighters from 10 countries are taking part.
