U.S. Air Force Capt. Jaclyn Dzieciolowski, the 610th Air Control Flight operations training officer and senior director, directs aircraft during a RED FLAG-Alaska 17-2 mission, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, June 20, 2017. The shop supported the U.S. and its allies during the large-force exercise and provided battle management command and control to the coalition forces who participated. They worked together with pilots in order to provide tactical advantages in the playing field in order to further enhance the Air Force’s capabilities to dominate in air and cyberspace.

It’s a dark room, lit up by a handful of bright screens; each one displays locations of different airframes in the sky. It’s laid out like a virtual play book with Airmen who look like football coaches wearing headsets giving instructions.  They're the 610th Air Control Flight from Misawa Air Base, Japan, now in Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska to

The Eagle Eyes program gives the power of reporting suspicious or unnerving behavior to all active duty, dependents and civilian personnel at Misawa Air Base, Japan, to the 35th Security Forces or Air Force Office of Special Investigation. The most common Eagle Eye reports on Misawa AB are surveillance and elicitation. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Senior Airman Deana Heitzman) Eagles’ eyes surround weasels’ den
When Misawa Air Base Airmen are within the Indo-Asia-Pacific region securing partnerships with allies or conducting the “Wild Weasel” mission, constant vigilance is maintained, and when they return to home station situational awareness is heightened for ever-changing threats. The Eagle Eyes program gives the power of reporting suspicious or

Two weather forecasters from Misawa Air Base, Japan, were responsible for advising 100 pilots flying 86 aircraft and more than 1,500 personnel for the entirety of RED FLAG-Alaska 17-2.“It was intimidating at first,” said Senior Airman Joseph Goebel, a 35th Operations Support Squadron weather forecaster. “We led the weather shop during one of the

She is the assistant dedicated crew chief of the 35th Fighter Wing flagship. While at Misawa, she hopes to become a dedicated crew chief of an F-16 after sewing on Senior Airman.

It's a dry 80 degrees in the shaded flow-through. For a crew chief, this is a pretty desirable work environment. Not too hot and not too cold... but for Airman 1st Class Jaimie Smith, the weather doesn't matter. The long hours don't matter. To her, this is more than a just a job. “I've always wanted to be a mechanic,” said Smith, a 14th Fighter

Misawa defenders shock competition, return as champions
The roaring crowd gradually wanes, falling on deaf ears, as the last shred of adrenalin jolts through his veins all the while peripheral vision narrows in, fixating on the opponent, and with the strike of the referee’s hands they advance into the tie-up position.Standing at 5 feet 6 inches, weighing 155 pounds, Airman Sergio Miranda, a 35th

Once the C-17 landed, a neonatal intensive care unit team from the U.S. Navy hospital, Okinawa, Japan, joined 35th Medical Group personnel to prepare the newborn for the flight.

Once a patient is deemed incapable of receiving care at Misawa Air Base due to medical constraints, the 35th Medical Support Squadron aeromedical evacuation team engineers an expedited mobility plan utilizing Pacific Air Forces assets to relocate the patient for critical care attention.

A 13th Fighter Squadron pilot waits on his wingman before taxiing for takeoff at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, June 13, 2017. While in Korea, pilots practiced basic fighter maneuvering in air-to-air combat. This mission-set is different from the suppression of enemy air defenses exercises performed while in Alaska because an aircraft is the target rather than a grounded target. The ability to move forces and operate from locations across the Indo-Asia-Pacific theater is a key strength for Team Misawa and Pacific Air Forces as a whole.

The military lifestyle is all-inclusive of late nights, long shifts, and more often than not, living out of a backpack on weeks-long temporary duty. For the hard-working Airmen of the 13th Fighter Squadron, that reality is all too familiar.Two weeks ago, the 13th FS flew nearly 24 hours from their first TDY at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, to
