U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Jason Watson, a 354th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, marshals an 18th Aggressor Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon to taxi, Aug. 19, 2015, prior to the launch of a RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 15-3 sortie from Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The support of the 354th Maintenance Group’s Airmen ensure the pilots of the 18th Aggressor Squadron can act as enemy “Red” forces to employ real-world tactics that require coalition “Blue” forces to adjust quickly, work together and overcome challenges during simulated combat sorties throughout RF-A.
