Nothing sounds better than a fighter jet pulling 6G’s over your head with afterburners, right?
A couple of weeks ago, me and @Alec (no longer on the forum) along with a few other spotters had the opportunity to take a Friday afternoon out spotting at Nellis Air Force Base. About 4 times a year, a training event called “Red Flag” occurs where the world’s air forces fly into Nellis and operate sorties and various other attack missions. It’s really cool to watch from the ground.
Only a couple of foreign countries have participated in 22-2 that are Singapore and Saudi Arabia as the majority of NATO is doing you know what at you know where.
I took roughly 150 photos and chose the 10 best ones to share below! Enjoy :)
