    The Falcon Talon exercise earlier this year was held at behest of USAF, in fact i heard US was adamant for a joint exercise.

    Not anymore, Trump administration called those agreements off. Might be a separate case.

    The exercise was held in February at Shahbaz.

    Video was posted on Jan 17, 2019. Meaning, the video could be recorded last year.
    Check from 4:14 to 4:20 ... Noticed what OP shared sometime back but ignored it. Was just surfing videos when came across it.

    USAFA cadets with international students. None are pilots.

    They are going because now they have to pay for them to go. Previously they were going there for free on bilateral exchanges of various forms.

    Are you sure?

    The guy is too old to be a cadet. And I showed this picture to someone based at Chakala. He recognised him as an Il guy.

    Also the USAFA is in CO while this picture was reportedly taken in New Mexico. What are all these cadets doing at an operational base in New Mexico?

    There are 3 major USAF bases in NM. Canon, Holloman and Kirtland.

    Canon specialises in Special Ops.
    Holloman has MQ9s and F-16s
    Kirtland runs ground support ops.
