Red Flag Alaska 16-1 - Eielson AFB (Jaguars!)

Post by sovietjet »

Red Flag Alaska 16-1 took place between April 28 and May 13 at Eielson AFB in Alaska. I was on base for two days, the first of which had atrocious weather, heavy rain and low ceilings. Despite the nasty weather, I tried my best. The second day was perfect though and offered superb photo conditions. Of course the stars of the show were the Indian air force which brought four Su-30MKIs and four Jaguars supported by two Il-78MKIs. It was my first time ever seeing Jaguars and I like the looks and character of this jet a lot! Other players included Kadena F-15s, Kunsan F-16s and some EA-18Gs. The hosts were the 18 AGRS with their colorful F-16s. More aircraft were flying out of Elmendorf as well. I hope you don't mind the large quantity of photos :smile:
