Blue Flag is a military aviation exercise held by the Israeli Air Force. It first took place in November 2013 at Ovda Air Force Base in Israel. The exercise, which included the participation of several foreign air forces (in 2019 Israeli AF, Italian AF, Greek AF, German AF, USAF), is aimed at expanding international cooperation.
The goal of the Blue Flag training exercise is to simulate extreme combat scenarios and coalition flights as realistically as possible.
