Rescue procedures

U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Wesley Hales, incoming 35th Fighter Wing chief of advanced programs, demonstrates the proper way to be rescued via hoist hook on Lake Ogawara at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 20, 2016. During the practical lesson of the water survival refresher training, Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape specialists review how to be rescued, parachute drags and disentanglements, and life raft living. Undergoing this training every three years is critical to the pilots because it may be the only time they are able to demonstrate these techniques before an emergency situation.
