German MIG-29 (right) next to U.S. Air Force F-16 parked on the flightline. Following their MIG-29 flight, MAJ. Gassner and GEN. Oaks reversed roles and embarked on a flight in the F-16. Since the end of the Cold War, armed forces from the east and west are meeting to further understand and strengthen friendships. Such a visit occurred when a MIG-29 from the former East Germany landed and hosted a flight for GEN. Oaks. GEN. Oaks returned the favor by giving the German pilot a F-16 ride
