The unit from the 31st Fighter Wing at Aviano Air Base arrived last week and had a couple of days in Luleå. For crew chief Clinton Begnoche it´s the first time in Sweden.
"It´s cold here but I like it because it´s not that busy. I´m not a big fan of the busy town."
The unit is participating with their F-16 Fighting Falcons and it´s Clinton Begnoche among others that are maintaining the fighters.
"Day to day basis we are inspecting the planes and ensure it´s ready for the mission, for the pilots to come out. It´s just as simply as that."
Clinton Bergnoche has been in the US Air Force for little over a year now and it´s he´s first exercise.
"I´m looking forward to just basically the action I think. I like the rush you get when the pilots come out and all the jets are firing up and making a lot of noise, and they are getting ready to go. That´s what I look forward to every day."
