Royal Saudi Air Force F-15C Eagles flew in formation with US Air Force F-15C Eagles over the Arabian Gulf region on Sunday, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

The jets flew as part of a mission aimed at bolstering military ties and joint work, it added.

Riyadh and Washington boast strategic historic ties that were built on trust and partnership that has been developed between them over the decades.

Their militaries often carry out joint drills to boost cooperation and planning of combat operations and confronting hostile forces.

In March, the United States’ Nellis Air Force Base hosted the 2019 Red Flag exercises that saw Saudi forces take part with their latest F-15SA Eagle fighters and entire technical and support crews.
