Wasn’t there a note saying that 6-17 March for 23-2 was incorrect?

Hi,
Sorry but I saw that RF 23-1 should run from 23rd January till 10th February, that is 3wks long. But usually the Red Flag only last 2 weeks. Is the 3rd week a backup one or a full one?

Many Thanks In Advance,
Best Regards
Marco

The first one has been a three week exercise for several years now.

Nellis has gone paranoid. There won’t be a participants list released. They won’t even publish the exercise dates on their website anymore!

Ya ive noticed that. I usually visit Vegas every year around the start and noticed the past few years have been really hard to get info. Almost need an "inside man" to get any kind of list these days

The main items on my 2023 Nellis shot list are chrome F-22 #2 and the 65th Aggressors. The Five Guys, err, Five Eyes birds will probably be much like 22-1.
