Any news of Red Flag participants yet? Presumably there should be arrivals in a week or so if the start date is the 15th July. Many thanks for any help

That’s assuming that the start date is the 15th. I don’t think the dates have been confirmed yet.

Very true. I was basing that date off the Dreamland Resort site, which now has the dates confirmed as '07/15/2024 - 07/25/2024' - however 10 days seems relatively short for a Red Flag?

It should end the 26th. Ten flying days.
Then they’ll move west for Bamboo Eagle.

VMFA 122, 542, the 94th FS and the 34th FS are a few of the confirmed fast movers. 965th AACS from Tinker is going as well.

The squadron had them for sale at the MCAS Cherry Point Airshow earlier this year.

Looking forward to viewing North Island AFB operations in a few weeks. Gotta hope it doesn't overlap Grey Flag.

Any idea on Grey Flag Exercise dates yet? Early August usually isn’t it?

Word from a squadron participating says Red Flag 24-3 begins on July 22nd. Runs two weeks, then will head west for Bamboo Eagle.

Two comments on Facebook indicate Spangdahlem F-16's are attending. Perhaps that's what ROMA73 is heading east from the States to drag back across, as the comment indicated three KC-46's are heading to Mildenhall to start the drag.
