Nighthawk talk

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. -- Staff Sgt. Robin Walker (left) and Staff Sgt. Greg Slavik prepare an F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter to launch from here. Aircraft, aircrews, maintainers and support Airmen from around the globe are here during March to participate in Red Flag, an Air Force exercise that tests warfightering skills in real-time combat situations. This is the Department of Defense's first Joint Red Flag exercise, in which more than 10,000 servicemembers from all four military branches, along with troops of some coalition forces, will train in an effort to develop improved joint training and experimentation capabilities. Sergeants Walker and Slavik are crew chiefs assigned to the 49th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Kevin J. Gruenwald)
