SAUDI ARABIA AIR FORCE TO TAKE PART IN RED FLAG 2019, AN INTERNATIONAL MILITARY DRILL
- The Saudi Arabia air force along with air forces from United States, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Singapore, will take part in Red Flag 2019, an international military drill, in the United States. The exercise gives aircraft crews an opportunity to experience advanced, relevant, and realistic combat-like situations in a controlled environment to increase their survivability in actual combat operations.
Exercise Red Flag:
- Exercise Red Flag is an advanced aerial combat training exercise held several times a year by the United States Air Force. The exercise offers realistic air-combat training for military pilots and other flight crew members from the U.S., NATO and other allied countries. Each year the exercise will be held at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. The exercise began in the year 1975. The origin of the exercise is traced to the unacceptable performance of U.S. Air Force fighter pilots and weapon systems officers (WSO) in air combat manoeuvring (ACM) (air-to-air combat) during the Vietnam War.
