Successful first day of RF-A 17-1

Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) F-15K Slam Eagle multi-role fighter aircraft taxi toward their ramp space on the Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, flight line Oct. 10, 2016, as a U.S. Air Force HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter assigned to the 210th Rescue Squadron prepares for its own mission after the first RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 17-1 combat training sortie ended. RF-A is a series of Pacific Air Forces commander-directed field training exercises vital to maintaining peace and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, and providing U.S. units and partner nation forces the opportunity to sharpen their combat skills and strengthen interoperability inside more than 67,000 square miles of airspace in the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex.
