Red Flag 21-2 doesn't start before March, so I would assume the AK's are here for RF21-1 or something else.

I believe the AC's are for Green Flag Oscar. But I understand SC ANG F-16's should be participating too.
In a couple of days all should be clear.

Kind Regards,

So no foreign AFs for 2021? Bummer, that's most of the reason I go. 21-3 looks decent for heavy bombers, the B-52s are fun to shoot. All 3 classes of Hornets, too. Does Draken still have F-1s at Nellis? Wouldn't mind catching that.
