Red Air: Aggressors’ experience provides life-saving training

U.S. Air Force Capt. Todd Possemato, an 18th Aggressor Squadron pilot, flies an F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft May 12, 2016, as a “bad guy” for a sortie during RED FLAG-Alaska 16-1 at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The average Aggressor pilot has at least 1,000 fighter hours and hundreds of hours of studying to become experts in enemy tactics used to train U.S. Air Force, joint and coalition partners during U.S. Pacific Air Forces commander-directed RF-A exercises.
