On Way To Red Flag Operation Excercise In Alaska

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Israeli air force had been invited to participate in annual Red Flag Operation exercises held in Alaska so the country decided to send its 707 refuel tankers to participate in Red Flag Operation flying from Tel Aviv via England for refueling to KPSM Portsmouth International Airport one nautical mile west of the central business district of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States on way to Alaska

Why KPSM Portsmouth International Airport?  That is because that is where many KC-135s of USAF are based and it is ideal place not only for refueling but also for any possible spare part replacements or repairs if needed.

Great sky colors and aircraft--but what did you do to be stationed in Alaska--misfire your weapon?😀

Thanks for kind words, Phantom88 and Cactus521

Cactus521,  Israeli air force was invited to Red Flag Exercise in Alaska hence Israel sending fuel tankers to participate in Red Flag Exercise in Alaska.
