35th FW supports ATR program

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Christian Cherven, 14th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron avionics technician, reviews an F-16 Fighting Falcon flight form book while performing maintenance on the flightline at Komatsu Air Base, Japan, Nov. 12, 2014. Cherven and more than 80 maintainers from Misawa Air Base, Japan, are currently at Komatsu supporting the 14th Fighter Squadron as part of the Aviation Training Relocation Program. The ATR program allows U.S. and Japanese forces to further enhance their interoperability and joint partnership by conducting training away from the U.S. forces' home station, while also providing a noise respite for those living near the U.S. Air Force installations of the units participating in ATRs throughout Japan. The maintainers are on hand to fix mechanical issues that may arise with the jet, ensuring the aircraft is capable of performing suppression of enemy air defenses and defensive/offensive counterair missions.
