Below is a really great doc about the 4477th Test and Evaluation Squadron. Better known as the Red Eagles, they were active from 1978 to 1988. During this time, they made 15,000 sorties and trained 6,000 pilots. The purpose: teach American pilots to win against Soviet fighters. Their aircraft, “acquired” Warsaw Pact/Chinese-made MiGs and Sukhois as part of Operation Constant Peg.
