In early 1998 Serbian forces began to attack against Albanians living in Kosovo and even after world-wide condemnation these actions did not stop. As a result, NATO began a response with attacks on Serbian forces and equipment. This action was labeled “Operation Allied Force” and lasted from March 24 1999 to June 10 1999 when Serbian leaders were forced to withdraw and end the violence. The German Air Force was one of the NATO countries involved and one of their aircraft was Tornado ECR 46+52/JBG 32 flying from Piacenza-San Damiano, Italy.Opening canopy
