RED FLAG-Alaska 24-2, a Pacific Air Forces-sponsored exercise, began May 30, with primary flight operations over the Joint Pacific-Alaska Range Complex scheduled to conclude June 14.

RED FLAG-Alaska is designed to provide realistic training in a simulated combat environment, enabling joint combined forces to exchange tactics, techniques and procedures while improving interoperability with fellow service members.

This iteration, approximately 3,100 service members from multiple nations are expected to fly, maintain and support more than 100 aircraft based at Eielson Air Force Base and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Training ranges from individual skills to complex, large-scale joint engagements, all within the 77,000 square-mile-airspace of the JPARC, the largest combat training range in the world.

Enhancing joint combined interoperability and combat readiness between allies and partners is a priority for PACAF. To highlight these efforts, JBER will host a RED FLAG-Alaska media day at 2 p.m. on June 13, 2024.

This media day may include:

  • A briefing explaining what RED FLAG-Alaska is.
  • Access to a NATO E-3 Sentry static display and interviews with international service members.
  • Interviews with participating JBER units and access to static displays of home-station aircraft.
