Picture from current five-national (Israel, Germany, Greece, Italy, US) exercise Blue Flag 2019 over the Negev.
Some more. Apparently one of the main objectives was exploring joint opererations of the F-35 and fighters of European allies (the Italians of course have both Typhoon and the F-35).

F-16 FIGHTER JET EPU H-70 HYDRAZINE FUEL HAZARDS
The United States Air Force (USAF) regularly uses H-70, a 70% hydrazine 30% water mixture, in operations employing the General Dynamics F-16 “Fighting Falcon” fighter aircraft and the Lockheed U-2 “Dragon Lady” reconnaissance aircraft. The single jet engine F-16 utilizes hydrazine to power its Emergency Power Unit (EPU), which provides emergency electrical and hydraulic power in the event of an engine flame out. The EPU activates automatically, or manually by pilot control, in the event of loss of hydraulic pressure or electrical power in order to provide emergency flight controls. The single jet engine U-2 utilizes hydrazine to power its Emergency Starting System (ESS), which provides a highly reliable method to restart the engine in flight in the event of a stall.
