Tech. Sgt. Christopher Fitzgerald, KC-135 Stratotanker boom operator assigned to the 93rd Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, delivers fuel to an F-16 Fighting Falcon from the Egyptian Armed Forces during Bright Star 21, over the Mediterranean Sea, Sept. 15, 2021. The 93rd EARS supported aerial refueling during Bright Star to both ensure participation from U.S. Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle aircraft assigned to the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing and provide training qualification opportunities for 12 Egyptian air force F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots. Bright Star 21 occurred from Sept. 2-16, 2021, and comprised three main events: a command post exercise, field training exercise and senior leader seminar. Bright Star builds on the strategic relationship between the U.S. and Egypt to support counterterrorism, contribute to regional security, and combat violent extremism.
