Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska’s interior has kicked off its third series of Red Flag exercises of the year.

The exercises taking place at the 65,000-square-mile Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex began Friday.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that air operations will be conducted until Aug. 22 out of Eielson, as well as Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage.

The exercises will include drills from U.S. and allied pilots, air crews and support personnel.

The entire Yukon Training Area will be closed through Aug. 23 because of the training events. People with regular access through military lands must use an alternate route to leased or private properties.
