RED FLAG-Alaska 22-3 - gas and go with 5th generation fighter aircrafts

By Airman 1st Class Andrew Britten JBER Public Affairs

Fifth generation fighter aircrafts receive fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker during RED FLAG-Alaska 22-3 over the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex, Alaska. The JPARC provides a realistic training environment, allowing Airmen to train for full spectrum engagements, ranging from individual skills to complex-large-scale joint engagement. The F-22 Raptors and F35 Lightning II will make Alaska the most concentrated state for fifth generation fighter aircraft.
