Four F/A-18 Hornets from Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 11, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), fly in close formation over the Southern California coast with two F-22 Raptors from 3rd Operations Group, Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, Feb. 6. The flight commemorated joint training achieved during exercises Winter Fury 2019 and Patriot Grizzly 2019, which focused on joint large-force tactical air integration against simulated high end air-to-air and surface-to-air threats, further honing Marine and Air Force 4th and 5th generation tactics and interoperability.
