Power, influence: Baron controllers lead the fight

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. William Heines, an 18th Aggressor Squadron baron controller, stands as the only enlisted member during a pre-flight briefing for a Red Flag-Alaska (RF-A) 15-2 sortie May 12, 2015, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. During RF-A, robust and accurate air war scenarios are enhanced by the barons who present ground threats and various types of jamming to provide problems blue forces will have to solve in order to gain and maintain air superiority.
