    He was squadron commander of a unit known for flying foreign aircraft in an aggressor role and the USAF refuses to identify what he was flying only to say it wasn't an F35. Do the math.

    That they do, and have for quite a while. Same with some Soviet air defense systems of varying types up at at the NTTR.

    So much going with many different units using the restricted airspaces. We lost one out there when our squadron deployed to train against the Aggressors. Wing fold failed, WSO got out but the AC rode it in.

    Btw my first Red Flag was in '76 which I think was the third one held. Went to several more including a Green Flag and a Maple Flag in Cold Lake. Don't recall losing any a/c in those exercises. The first one was the most fun.

    Wrt Gen Bond, as I recall, Steve Davies's book Red Eagles was pretty critical of him.
