Indo-Asia-Pacific security solidified during 35th FW surge at Kunsan

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class A.J. Kovacs, a 14th Aircraft Maintenance Unit crew chief, talks with Capt. Jacob Impellizzeri, a 14th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter pilot, through his headset at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, May 16, 2017. Before each flight, the pilot and crew chief communicate to each other through headsets, allowing the pilot to test all of the functions of the aircraft, ensuring complete safety before take-off. The 14th FS’s movement to Korea allows the 35th Fighter Wing an opportunity to maintain proficiency and continue to train while Misawa undergoes runway construction.
