FROM THE SKIES to the sea, the training personnel of Exercise Tradewinds 2024 have made their presence felt across Barbados.

After several days where the signature buzzing of their ‘US Black Hawk’ helicopters filled the air and drew the crowds on each sighting, the 2024 chapter of the programme will conclude today.

Through their time on the island, this multi-domain exercise has included training and simulations on cyber, Caribbean Task Force, ground special operations forces and maritime components.
