The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) will participate in upgrade training and interact with US and allied forces after their return to Eielson Air Force Base and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson for RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 11-2.

The RAAF brought seven FA-18 Hornet fighter jets to engage in daily missions during RF-A 11-2.

RED FLAG-Alaska 11-2 presented an opportunity for RAAF maintainers to gain experience on the F/A-18 Hornet whilst learning how other countries perform aircraft maintenance and keep their fighter jets mission capable.

The RAAF and a small contingent of the Australian Army used the exercise as an opportunity to sharpen their mission readiness on the ground and in the air.

The RF-A 11-2 training exercise scenarios have been tailored to the participants’ objectives, making it possible for meeting unique training goals while maintaining global partnerships.
