Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada
I spent the morning of Friday, November 5 parked off the departure end of Runway 03 Right at Nellis Air Force Base to get photos of the participants of the Red Flag Exercise. This exercise marked the introduction of German MiG-29 Fulcrums.

I spent the first three days of February sitting off the north end of Nellis Air Force Base shooting photos of the participants in the Red Flag 00-02 exercise. The Royal Air Force and the Turkish Air Force were there. The first page of pictures from the February 2000 Red Flag exercise features McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagles and Lockheed-Martin F-16 Fighting Falcons.

The remnants of a Pacific hurricane were drifting over Las Vegas, Nevada while I was photographing Red Flag Exercise 02-04 from September 5 to September 10. It was surprisingly cloudy and cool, and there were frequent light showers.
