Eielson Air Force Base -- Two Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet aircraft pilots assigned to the 409th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake, Canada, walk from the Thunderdome, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, Aug. 5, 2016, during the familiarization day of RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 16-3, while a U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft assigned to the 35th Fighter Squadron, Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, taxis for take off. Free exchange of ideas between multilateral forces during RF-A enhances not just partners and sister-service relationships, but also their operational efficiency. 

NORAD, the binational command between the U.S. and Canada, is the benchmark for the exchange of ideas, training, and resources between multilateral forces.
