U.S. Air Force F-15 fighters jets from Massachusetts Air National Guard’s 104th Fighter Wing, and Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 fighter jets from 3 Wing, Bagotville, Quebec fly in formation with a Pennsylvania Air National Guard KC-135 Stratotanker from the 171st Air Refueling Wing during a Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command Region and Canadian NORAD Region cross-border demonstration, April 23, 2020. Aircrew and members of the Air National Guard and Royal Canadian Air Force practiced tactical-intercept skills in an air defense exercise designed to reinforce interoperability across the United States and Canadian border. A bi-national Canadian and American command, NORAD employs a network of space-based, aerial and ground-based sensors, air-to-air refueling tankers, and fighter aircraft, controlled by a sophisticated command and control network to deter, detect and defend against aerial threats that originate outside or within North American airspace.
