Exercise Red Flag Nellis air Force base, nevada

The RAF is playing a major role in Exercise Red Flag alongside the US Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force
Typhoons from 6 Squadron, supported by 1 Air Control Centre, are fighting their way into hostile airspace, launching precision strikes on ground targets and fighting their way out again
The RAF's assets are up against 'hostile' Red Force aggressors, mirroring real-life threats they could face from adversaries
This year, Voyager, based at RAF Brize Norton, is playing in Red Flag for the first time, flying two sorties daily to refuel RAF aircraft
The RAF's Rivet Joint (pictured) and Sentinel are also playing a vital role, gathering intelligence and other mission-critical information
Red Flag has seen Typhoons flying with '5th Generation' US fighter aircraft, including the US Air Force F-22 Raptor…
…and, for the first time, US Air Force F-35As - hugely rewarding exposure to 5th Generation jets for RAF crews ahead of the F-35B's introduction into the RAF in 2018
But Red Flag isn't just about flying. The synthetic, 5th Generation element of the exercise has seen RAF personnel counter space and cyber threats
Red Flag marks the start of three months of Typhoon activity in the US and runs until early February
