When you think of Red Flag, Nellis and the Nevada terrain immediately springs to mind.
But there is another Red Flag combat training exercise that takes place over the vast training areas of Alaska.
Noteworthy, the latest Red Flag-Alaska 12-2, at Eielson Air Force Base, with more than 100 aircraft and 2,500 personnel, has seen several firsts. It’s the first time U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Raptors have participated in Red Flag-Alaska, along with eight German Eurofighter Typhoons from Jagdgeschwader 74.
Another first is the participation of the Polish Air Force that has brought its F-16 Block 52 aircraft.
Japan is taking part as well, with its F-15J Eagles (somehow causing some confusion to the U.S. DoD Flickr uploaders – see caption).
