Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the February 18th issue of Nellis AFB / Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! Red Flag-Nellis 22-1 continued its mission in the early weeks of February, with Airmen and their Allied partners reaping major benefits from the realistic combat scenarios provided during the course of the exercise. “The number of assets that are provided here at the exercise provides a much more complex and dynamic scenario that we aren’t able to train for back home,” said FLTLT Brayden Whicker, an Air Battle Manager mission crew with the Royal Australian Air Force. “This basically allows us to come here and work with the best of the U.S. and U.K. in a much more complex environment.” It’s been a very exciting few weeks at Nellis — we have the whole story (with photos!) and much more news ready for you, in this week’s edition of Desert Lightning News.
