JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii --
After careful consideration and close coordination with participating nations and units, Pacific Air Forces has cancelled the Red Flag-Alaska 20-2 exercise scheduled for June 11 - 26 at Eielson Air Force Base and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.
The decision to cancel follows ongoing Department of Defense travel restrictions given the number of participants outside of Alaska. PACAF continues to plan subsequent iterations. Local training at all our locations continues, and with our allies and partner, for example where they can meet in international air space.
Red Flag-Alaska is a Pacific Air Forces-sponsored exercise designed to provide realistic training in a simulated combat environment with primary flight operations over the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex.
