While on a routine mission in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, a 313th Airlift Squadron crew conducted a joint training exercise with the Royal Dutch Air Force's 323rd Squadron.

Flying at 25,000 feet and after careful coordination with Dutch aircraft controllers, Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. Kevin Sampson and his crew from McChord Air Force Base, Wash., were intercepted by two Dutch F-16 fighter aircraft on March 27, 2007.

This multi-national training was conducted to provide increased wartime capabilities and enhance U.S.-Dutch relations. The 313th AS is assigned to the Air Force Reserve Command's 446th Airlift Wing.
