Exercise Vambrace Warrior involving troops from the USA, Malaysia and Japan, is part of the largest UK ground-based air defence exercise since 2003.
Convoys of army vehicles were seen on Llanbedr airfield, Gwynedd and a US MJ130 Hercules aircraft circled the skies above.
It was seen to drop an object to the ground, followed by an airdrop of around a dozen paratroopers. It later landed on the airfield.
