A Time Lapse Of Aircraft Taking Off For An Intense Combat Simulation

From Foxtrot Alpha: I shot this in the desert a few miles north east of Nellis AFB during RED FLAG exercises, which the Air Force calls the "premier air-to-air combat training exercise," pitting pilots against one another in a massive simulation.

Watch A Time Lapse Of The Air Force's Most Intense Combat Simulation

I shot this in the desert a few miles north east of Nellis AFB during RED FLAG exercises, which the Air Force calls the "premier air-to-air combat training exercise," pitting pilots against one another in a massive simulation.

After attending a number of RED FLAG exercises it still amazes me how much hardware comes alive (flights, taxis, fighters) and comes back all within a fairly limited span of time.

This night time lapse video will hopefully give you a good idea of what I am talking about. Make sure to set the YouTube player to 1080p, enlarge the player's window, and turn the audio up a bit to get the total experience!
