OK, which Friday 8th or 15th? The 8th was a Red Flag non-flying day, it was also 'Distinguished Visitors Day' (although apparently there was a small mission!) The 15th was the last day, and reports suggest the mission was smaller than usual, and some stuff went home?
I wasn't there but there are lots of reports of (mostly unmarked) DM A-10s doing Green Flag. The usual clues are that they operate from the revetments and use dedicated Green Flag callsigns (which recently have been RENO for the am mission and SHARK for the pm one). They've also been seen in a certain canyon this week. The based A-10s fly regularly as part of Weapons School and OT missions.
