Desert Lightning News – August 10, 2018

Welcome to the Nellis-Creech AFB Desert Lightning News Digital Edition! Our coverage of Red Flag 18-3 continues – very heavy on the eye candy, lots of nice photos in this week’s issue! Airmen and aircraft from squadrons throughout the U.S. converged on Nellis for two weeks in July and early August, joined by personnel from the Colombian air force. Together, the troops participated in exercises designed to prepare combat air forces, joint and allied aircrews for tomorrow’s victories, with challenging and realistic scenarios. Our photo feature on pages 10 and 11 highlights the Israeli-built F-21 Kfir jets of the Colombian air force, which joined in the Red Flag exercises.
