Erick Vega, an avionics specialist with the 555th Fighter Squadron out of Aviano Air Base, Italy, attempts to figure out why the space systems on his F-16 Fighting Falcon aren't working correctly, while Chief Master Sgt. Tony Russell, a Red Flag Inspector General evaluator, observers. Airmen from the 527th Space Aggressor Squadron attempt to challenge Red Flag participants by posing attacks on space assets, simulating a potential attack by the enemy.
