Exercise Flying Rhino 09

2000 UK personnel took part in Exercise Flying Rhino in the Czech Republic alongside troops from Canada, Denmark, Germany, Lithuania and the Czech Army of course. The exercise involved army and air force units including artillery from the 3rd Regiment, Royal Horse Artillery and 101st Regiment Royal Artillery and Tornado GR4s from RAF 34 squadron. Flying Rhino was originally intended for Forward Air Controllers (FACs) who guide aircraft to their targets on the ground but now includes other personnel and other kinds of training.
