MADISON (WKOW) -- Almost 100 men and women from the Wisconsin Air National Guard are heading overseas to train with their military counterparts in Poland.

The Guard members are part of the 115th Fighter Wing. They include pilots, maintenance workers and support personnel. They'll spend more than two weeks at Lask Air Base, where they'll embed with members of the Polish Air Force for a joint training exercise.

The Wisconsin unit will use F-16 aircraft.

The Fighter Wing's participation marks the first rotation of fighter aircraft by the U.S. Air Force Aviation Detachment in Poland. The detachment supports joint training through the periodic rotation of U.S. aircraft.
