That'll be it then. Green Flag is a Close Air Support exercise and usually only involves one unit.

The one at Nellis is Green Flag - West, there is also a Green Flag - East.

Where were they parked and what callsigns were they using? Green Flag stuff usually (but not always) parks in the revetments.

One of the UH-60’s that flew out of Nellis today, should be readed with code 359.
