Approximately 100 Pakistan Air Force pilots, maintainers, and support personnel deployed to Nellis AFB, Nevada, in mid July for Red Flag 10-4. This marks the first time that Pakistan has participated in a Red Flag exercise, the world’s premier large force employment and integration exercise.

Red Flag 10-4 ran 17–31 July and included pilots and support personnel from the US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, as well as Saudi Arabia and Singapore. Pakistan also participated in a Green Flag exercise at Nellis in August. Green Flag is the new designation for close-air support and precision-guided munitions delivery training.
