    Finnish personnel monitor the fuel levels as they refuel a U.S. Air Force Reserve KC-135 Stratotanker assigned to the 459th Air Refueling Wing, Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, at Rovaniemi Air Base, Finland, during Arctic Challenge Exercise 2021, June 15. The Finnish ensure the proper amount of fuel is pumped into the aircraft prior to each day’s refueling mission. ACE 21 is a joint, multinational exercise intended to create a significant measure of autonomy for European partners and U.S. forces across the European theater to exercise high-intensity and global peer competitor combat scenarios. U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa and our allies and partners are strengthening our assurance efforts to adapt through improving readiness and responsiveness, building a capacity to improve effectiveness and interoperability.
