Since its establishment during World War Two, Navy squadrons have been deployed to the high desert outside of Fallon, Nevada, to hone their aerial combat skills. Today, Naval Air Station Fallon, with its 14,000 ft runway – the longest in the Navy – hosts squadrons and carrier air wings conducting refresher training and work-ups prior to their next fleet assignments. High Desert Deployment explains how these deployments make, and keep, the squadrons combat ready. Stunning images show the colorful history of various squadrons along with the markings the aircraft display.
The popular CAG-birds that fly the squadron's colors into battle are shown in all their glory. The local base aircraft of NAS Fallon are also profiled, including the famous aggressor ""Bandits,"" as well as the aircraft used to train Top Gun crews. Also, the base features an extensive air park collection of past aircraft including several MiG fighters, as well as gate guards that honor the aircraft history of the US Navy.
High Desert Deployment highlights the aircraft that are such a vital part in the war on terror, the ones that are, at this time, deployed around the world to project power to maintain our freedom.
