Northern Viper tests Team Misawa’s power projection hub readiness
U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Zachary Sasman, a Heavy Marine Helicopter Squadron 462 crew chief, looks out of a window to visually assist in landing a CH-53E Super Stallion near Chitose Air Base, Japan, Aug. 16, 2017. The HMH-462, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, is forward deployed under the unit deployment program with 1st MAW, based in Okinawa, Japan, for training purposes. Misawa acts as a centralized hub if a contingency occurred in the Indo-Asia- Pacific region, enabling the wing to uphold its “fight tonight” posture and assist other units in the same. The exercise allowed Allied forces to increase combined arms proficiency in both ground and aviation capabilities. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Sadie Colbert)
