The Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) is co-hosting the Pacific Airlift Rally 2017, a military exercise currently underway on the island, alongside the Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), a Major Command of the United States Air Force.

“The event is a command post and flying training exercise with a focus on humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations,” reported the US military.

As part of the exercise, Sri Lankan troops had lectures and inspected US aircraft.

Sri Lankan paratroopers were also scheduled to jump from a USAF C-130 over Amparai.
