Thanks Macbeth

I hope you don't mind me posting these images but before Kuwait bought the F/A-18 they had the trusty A-4 Skyhawks [later sold too Argentina and Brazil]

Some though, are trained by the French air force..lol
My understanding is that some retired US Marine aviators also went over to fly and train Kuwaiti F/A-18 crews...

Thanks for the sharing, G-Capo. Hmm...I have never heard anything about French Air Force training the Kuwaiti pilots.
