Red Flag 14-1 and Nellis (GIANT HUGE post)

Postby sovietjet on Wed 16 Apr 2014, 5:15 am

It's been a few months since the exercise finished however it took some time for me to go through everything. As most know, there's a lot of participants, a lot of action, and even more aircraft. It's hard to capture the magnitude of it all with only a small amount of pics, therefore I have a ton of photos :lol: .

First and foremost, Nellis has a lot of activity outside of Red Flag. Below are just some fraction of the local players and other random stuff.

To start off the Red Flag stuff, the hosts. The 64th and 65th AGRS.

Of course, there are other participants which only flew at night or which I couldn't take photos of, however I think these covered it enough.

Thanks everyone for the comments. In fact I also did some air-to-air from a KC-135 however those photos are forever lost.
