Diversity in the ATC

Koku-Jieitai 2nd Lt. Kanako Kitada, left, a 2nd Air Wing Air Traffic Control Squadron air traffic controller, poses with three U.S. Airmen in the Chitose Air Base air traffic control tower during a tour and mission briefing as part of a 10-day U.S.-Japan Bilateral Career Training at Chitose Air Base, Japan, April 15, 2017. The ATC controls aircraft for both the Kokujieitai and commercial airport with runways on both sides of the tower. Kitada said it can get very busy when both the base and the airport are launching aircraft simultaneously. She added she loves her job and enjoyed sharing her mission with the U.S. Airmen visiting from Misawa Air Base, Japan. Koku-Jieitai is the traditional term for Japan Air Self Defense Force used by the Japanese. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
