Misawa Photos


Service members and children from the Hirosaki Aiseien Orphanage watch a munitions load competition at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 11, 2017. During the competition, load crew teams raced against the clock, and each other, to arm an F-16 Fighting Falcon with one AIM-9 Sidewinder a short-range air-to-air missile, one AIM-120 advanced medium range air-to-air missile, an AGM-88 High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile and a Joint Direct Attack Munition GBU 31 (v) 3/B. Hosting events such as this promotes cultural exchanges between the U.S. and Japan on more than just a military foundation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie A. Hutto)
