Pilot008,

Are you referring to RF or GF between 5-8 March? I ask because I have been told that the flying phase for RF 19-2 is 11-22 March and not what is listed on the Nellis website.

Regards

Mark

It says that RF 19-1 ends February 15th, so is there flying the 15th or it basically ends Thursday?

Would expect a day mission on the 15th, but no night mission.

Wouldn't expect any weekend flying.

RF 19-2 participants in case anyone missed it last month. Wanted to see if there was any more word on 19-2 being pushed back to March 11th. Trying to plan or trip accordingly. Thanks!

Hi everyone,
Just to be sure, RF 19-2 will be held from March 11-22 correct? Not the dates listed on the Nellis site? Just want to make sure so I can plan around those dates.
Thanks

According to reliable FB posts, the exercise runs from the 11th to the 22nd, but there are usually famil flights during the week before it starts, and sometimes at the weekend before.

Singapore F-15s are from Mountain Home, Saudi ones are apparently coming direct from the factory, which would suggest that their respective A330s are unlikely to appear.

Colombian KC-767 can be added to the list (according to numerous FB posts, including ones from the Colombian Air Force!)
