    Welcome Knights.  You've arrived just in time to participate in the infamous Red Flag exercise. As you'll be flying for VMA-214, consider yourselves honorary 'Black Sheep'. I'm sure you're all riding high after completing your primary flight training back at Cherry Point, but just remember you've only scratched the surface.
