RAAF C-130J at Exercise Red Flag (1.24 mins)

The Royal Australian Air Force has deployed a contingent of approximately 200 personnel to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada for Exercise Red Flag 17-1, taking place from 23 January to 10 February 2017. Conducted by the United States Air Force, the exercise also involves participants from the United Kingdom, and provides a highly-complex environment for Coalition partners from all three nations to fly missions into the 31,000-square-kilometre Nevada Test and Training Range. Exposure to this environment, and to the technologies utilised in a modern battlespace, enables the RAAF to develop its people and techniques as it introduces more advanced air power capabilities under Plan Jericho.
