Platform view
It's very important to keep in mind that air warfare changed a lot through the years...
... new threats are to be recognized and countered successfully nowadays. 
Every country participates with various different contributions like this Spanish Dassault F-1 
Next to pilots also ground-crews enjoy such a large event like this, many days from home.
All skills will be adressed, routines within a large operation.
It's very valuable to share these (different) routines with fellow pilots of other countries...
... since opponents can be the Su-35, or terrorists using human shields (read Afghanistan special)
Several of the participants are active in and above Afghanistan bringing their experience with them.
The F-16 ofcourse is one of the main contributors in Afghanistan to protect the people.
