The 51st FW is stationed at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, and sent Airmen from the 36th Fighter Squadron, 36th Fighter Generation Squadron, and 51st Operations Support Squadron to participate in Red Flag-Alaska 24-1. The 51st FW provides combat ready forces for close air support, air strike control, forward air control-airborne, combat search and rescue, counter air and fire, and interdiction in the defense of the Republic of Korea. Red Flag-Alaska serves as an ideal platform for international engagement and the exercise has a long history of including Allies and Partners. This enables all involved to exchange tactics, techniques and procedures while improving interoperability.
