Behind the scenes of RF-A Behind the scenes of RF-A
Eielson Air Force Base hosts several RED FLAG-Alaska exercises every year. For the 2018 calendar year, there are four RF-As in the works. It takes a lot of time, energy and dedication from various Airmen and civilians in the 353rd Combat Training Squadron and from around base to make these exercises a success. “The planning starts approximately 10-11 months out for each different exercise,” said Capt. Eric Fenske, a 353rd CTS range duty officer and the RF-A 18-2 team chief. “Typically the first planning meeting happens about eight months out from the event. They happen at four concurrent times with the four different exercises we have scheduled this year.”
