Green Flag West Exercises Underway

NELLIS AFB -- Military aircraft will be seen in the skies above Southern Nevada as the U.S. Air Force hosts Green Flag West exercises.

Through August 19th, aircraft will depart from Nellis Air Force Base twice a day for missions at the National Training Center in California. Flying will take place Sunday through Friday both weeks.

This is the first Green Flag exercise for the Pakistani Air Force and the Royal Saudi Air Force. Their participation increases the inter-operability between air forces.

Green Flag West's realistic air-land integration and employment training prepares U.S. and allied nations for deployment and modern Close Air Support combat operations worldwide.

The exercise flight path includes areas within the Las Vegas valley, near Mount Charleston, and north of Pahrump.
