Air Power in NATO

Abstract

Since its formation on 4 April 1949 the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has achieved its primary and enduring objective: to deter aggression against member states. Consequently, its air forces have not seen combat as Alliance formations although US, UK, Dutch, Belgian and French aircraft have all contributed to national operations outside the NATO area. Yet air power, in one form or another, has dominated strategies designed to provide security to the Atlantic area ever since tension between the wartime allies began to threaten another conflict.
