Although the Spanish Air Force (Ejército del Aire; EA) already concluded their show of Air Power in the yearly Exercise Sirio on 14 March 2014, we at AIRheads↑Fly feel we just have to make you aware of some great images made during the opex. During Siro 2014 Zaragoza Airbase was home to 34 combat aircraft that came from Badajoz, Albacete, Sevilla, Torrejón and Rota, including Armada EAV-8B Harrier jump jets. The exercise is the most important of the country, according to Spanish defence chief General Admiral Fernando Garcia Sanchez.
