U.S. Air Force Capt. Dakota Newton, a Pacific Air Forces F-16 Demonstration Team safety observer, shares a thumbs up with a young boy during the Hofu Air Festival at Hofu-kita Air Base, Japan, May 21, 2017. The interaction with community is one aspect of the teams overall mission, the other being a display of the F-16 Fighting Falcons air power. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie Hutto)
