The skies over the Eastern Interior will be busy over the next couple of weeks, as Eielson Air Force Base conducts another round of Red Flag aerial combat training, beginning Saturday. It’ll be the first time that Eielson’s F-35s will participate in the training exercises, which have been hampered this year by the COVID-18 pandemic.
