(p.163) 9 Deliberate and Allied Force
The Air Force Way of War

Brian D. Laslie

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter 9 covers Operation Deliberate Force and Operation Allied Force. Both were successful, but certain air force training exercises proved to have limitations during combat. While air force operations continued to demonstrate the merits of the Red Flag exercise, the Blue Flag command and control exercise was seriously tested and found to be wanting in some areas. This chapter also examines a specific combat search and rescue effort, the rescue of a downed F-117 pilot, and ties its success directly back to the long tradition of rescue efforts trained for during peacetime.
