FAIRBANKS- Airmen from South Korea and Japan will join U.S counterparts for military combat training this week at Eielson Air Force Base outside Fairbanks.
The Red Flag Alaska training exercise begins Thursday and runs through Aug. 23.
The Air Force says at least six types of aircraft will be involved, including F-16s, F-15s, A-10s, KC-135s, KC-130s and F-18s.
Military personnel from California, Washington, Alabama, Indiana, Louisiana and Oklahoma will join Alaska personnel for the exercise.
Two other Red Flag Alaska exercises scheduled earlier in the year were canceled by budget cuts.
