Rainfall maneuver

The Japan Air Self-Defense Force Blue Impulse assigned to the 4th Air Wing, 11th Squadron from Matsushima Air Base, Japan perform a rainfall maneuver during the Pacific Partners Air Festival at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 10, 2017. The rainfall consists of five Kawasaki T-4 planes that descend vertically and bloom in their own respective directions. This is an acrobatic flight that shows smoke trails spreading out in five different directions. The T-4 is a middle class training aircraft used as an auxiliary aircraft in basic operational training and combat air wings in the JASDF. (U.S. Air Force photo by Amn Xiomara M. Martinez)
