From the Nellis Web Site:

The next Red Flag runs Feb. 24-Mar. 11 [this should probably be "Feb. 21-Mar. 11"]. For the first two weeks, more than 80 aircraft are scheduled to depart Nellis twice a day, with early launches around 11 a.m. and late launches around 7 p.m. During the third week, early launches change to 2 p.m. and late launches begin around 9:30 p.m. Aircraft may remain in the air for up to four hours.

Aircraft involved include F-15s, F-16s, E-3s, E-8s, A-10s, B-2s, C-130s and KC-135s, from Nevada, Missouri, Georgia, New Mexico, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, South Carolina and Washington. In addition to U.S. aircraft, the U.K. Royal Air Force will participate with GR4 Tornados and the Royal Australian Air Force will participate with their C-130s.

Red Flag 11-3 will mark the official transition to a three-week exercise. It will also undergo several changes to include cyberspace as a new domain in execution of Red Flag.
