The U.S. Air Force 354th Operations Group F-16 Fighting Falcon flagship sits on the tarmac at Royal Australian Air Force Base Williamtown, in New South Wales, Australia, March 19, 2017. Exercise Diamond Shield 2017, the second of four Diamond Series exercises conducted by the RAAF Air Warfare Centre, is an Australian Defence Force training activity where high-readiness forces deploy quickly to remote locations in Australia in response to a simulated security threat. The exercise will see members of the ADF Navy, Army and Air Force rapidly deploy to counter a fictitious force posing a threat to Australia's national security in the Kimberley region in North Western Australia.
