Air Force takes F-22 to Red Flag.
Red Flag only accepts aircraft that are "combat ready," says one of the training commanders, Lt. Col. Craig Anfinsen.
Twelve F-22 Raptors, based at Langley Air Force Base, Va., took part in one exercise in Alaska, Northern Edge, in June. At Nellis, the Raptor will fly against the 64th and 65th aggressor squadrons, whose pilots operating F-16 and F-15 fighters--will do their best to simulate shooting the F-22 pilots down.
