Senior Airman Chad Eichmeier, weapons three man jammer driver, drives a jammer before loading a bomb onto an F-22A Raptor, Jan. 15, at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M. Airmen and pilots gear up for their upcoming exercise Red Flag at Nellis AFB, N.V., starting around the end of January. The Red Flag exercises, conducted in four-to-six cycles a year by the 414th Combat Training Squadron of the 57th Wing, are very realistic aerial war games. The purpose is to train pilots from the U.S., NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and other allied countries for real combat situations. This includes the use of "enemy" hardware and live ammunition for bombing exercises within the Nevada Test and Training Range.
