ATHENS – The bilateral exercise “Stolen Cerberus 22” was held from May 3 to May 11 in the framework of military cooperation between Greece and the United States. According to an announcement, the exercise included free fall and static line jumps, supply drops over land and sea, low altitude flights, search-and-rescue scenarios and air lifts.

On the Greek side, officers and deputy officers of the Special Warfare Command and Air Force aircraft participated in the exercise. On the American side, personnel of the 37th Airlift Squadron of the 86th Airlift Wing participated, as well as three C-130J aircraft.
