Nellis hosting Red Flag Exercises next week

Red Flag Exercises are returning to Nellis Air Force Base next week.

The exercises will be July 14 through July 25. People living near the base will notice an increase in aircraft noise.

Red Flag offers U.S. forces realistic combat training. Aircraft will depart the base twice a day and remain in the air for up to five hours.

The exercises are hosted at the Nevada Test and Training Range, which is north of Las Vegas. It offers 12,000 square miles of airspace and 2.9 million acres of land.
