Gambling in Las Vegas or do some aircraft spotting at Nellis AFB? It is an easy decision to make for an aviation enthusiast, especially when a Red Flag exercise is on! Red Flag is considered as one of the biggest, most complex and most demanding aerial exercises in the world and is usually held at least four times a year.
Due to fiscal problems of the US-government "our" Red Flag has been cut short but we witnessed a lot of flying activity nonetheless. Most importantly to us was the opportunity to cover the various "aggressor" paint schemes.
