Description by New Video Group:
With over 12,000 square miles of airspace, Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas is one of the most sophisticated military training facilities in the world.
At Nellis, the legendary Red Flag training exercises take place, during which more than 100 USAF and NATO combat aircraft pilots hone their skills, engaging in hostile air and ground threats at supersonic speeds and gleaning invaluable experience in real-world combat situations. RED FLAG brings viewers into the heart of the action, soaring along inside planes during exercises and tracking teams as they engage each other over the desert. Meet the instructors who orchestrate scenarios, hear how the pilots endure them, and take a view from the cockpit of a hightech fighter jet.
Fast-paced and exhilarating, RED FLAG ventures high into the skies to reveal how U.S. Air Force pilots become the best of the best.
