US, British crew taste Australia's E-7A

In order to train on the Boeing E-7A Wedgetail Airborne, Americans and Britons joined a Royal Australian Air Force crew.

Here in northern Australia, Early Warning and Control planes are participating in a multinational air combat exercise.

Speaking to the press while touring the RAAF Base Tindal in Katherine,

Squadron Leader Adam Paull of 2 Squadron, who is in charge of the detachment

which is in charge of flying the Australian E-7As reported that the planes alternately supported the two blue

and red air missions at the exercise, as well as carrying out general airspace management and control duties.

The military slang for simulated friendly and antagonistic forces is blue and red, respectively.
