Distant Frontier prepares units for RED FLAG-Alaska

U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft assigned to the 18th Aggressor Squadron taxi to the Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, runway April 27, 2015, to participate in a Distant Frontier mission with F-16 pilots and aircraft deployed from the 113th Wing, District of Columbia Air National Guard.
