I was really hoping it wasn't this squadron as it is always Hill or Shaw AFB Viper units. They have never invited F-15Es or A-10s or Marine Corps fighter squadrons.

Could this be a sign of things to come?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but its been a VERY LONG TIME since the USAF has conducted air exercises with Pakistan. Could this be a thaw in the relationship between the two?

In Pakistan it has been 3 years since USAF aircraft participated, but USAF came for an exercise last year to Sargodha

That makes sense.

Still, if exercises are now becoming more regular, perhaps it is a thaw.

So I’m guessing it’s a National Guard Sqn again? Not actually USAF?

Military to military relationships haven’t thawed or frozen - they keep pretty much the same professionally with some ebb and flow.
