Royal Air Force personnel are participating in Red Flag 20-1 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada in the United States.
Typhoon and Lightning multi-role fighters, supported by a Voyager tanker, are being flown daily alongside United States Air Force, U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Air Force counterparts in the most complex and demanding air combat training available anywhere in the world.
