Welcome!

Dave and I are also hoping to attend Red Flag for the first time, but we haven't been able to find any dates yet.

Thanks for that! Almost exactly when I figured and hoped. I really hope we can get a confirmation soon so I can make plans or plan on something else.

Nellis AFB website officially released the Red Flag dates for 2019.

Red Flag 19-1: January 26 to February 15
Red Flag 19-2: March 3 to March 16
Red Flag 19-2: July 13 to July 31

Definitely need to swing by for a Red Flag one of these years (except in the Summer when it's 100 degrees outside) lol

Perfect! I’ll be in Vegas over 19-2 exercise.

Now I just need a cactus costume so I can sneak closer to the action
