RIONEGRO, Colombia -- Colombian led exercise Ángel de los Andes has concluded after two weeks of simulated humanitarian assistance and disaster relief response in multiple locations throughout Colombia.
U.S. personnel trained side-by-side with forces from Brazil, Colombia, Canada, Chile and Honduras. During the training they covered earthquake and tsunami scenarios, flying 170 training sorties over 175.5 hours, transported 172,000 pounds of cargo, over 1,600 personnel and conducting aeromedical evacuation for 95 simulated patients.
There were more than 740 participants and 15 airframes from six nations that participated in this year's exercise, with eight additional countries observing, making it the most diverse and largest contingent of personnel in Ángel de los Andes’ history. This exercise is held bi-annually with the next one scheduled for 2023.
