    I have posted videos before but THIS one is outfreakingstanding! This is going to be the best 50 minutes you've spent today.

    You really need headphones.

    It shows the Operation Red Flag at Nellis AFB of flight operations from the AWACS to F-16 OPFOR and F-15 FA-18's from Canada, Harriers from England and Tornados from Germany.
    A-10's, PAVE LOW, Blackhawks, PJ's recuing a downed pilot, air refueling and crewmen F-15 engine testing. They even have a petting zoo.

    The camera work is amazing and the sound is incredible! You can hear the flares popping from the aircraft.

    I cast the video from my phone to the 60” big screen with sound bar. Pretty awesome. I’d like to have seen it in the IMAX theater it was designed for.

    I remember all the flying/air traffic during the Red Flag exercise when I was station at FT Greely AK. I will drive to Ellison AFB and see all the jets line up on the Air field. Oh, my tax money at work.

    Not as good as the OP's video, but there is a place out west called "Star Wars Canyon" where military pilots fly at low level. Photographers line up out there to get photos of them. Go to YouTube and search our "Star Wars canyon" to see more.





    It is also known as "Jedi Transition" or "Rainbow Canyon." It is located in Death Valley National Park.
