Misawa Photos

Ooof! This is heavy!

High school students visiting Misawa City with a delegation from Wenatchee Valley, Washington, attempt to lift an F-16 Fighting Falcon’s missile during their tour of Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 24, 2017. The students, joined by their city’s mayors and respective families members visited the base during the group’s annual cultural exchange with Misawa City. The partnership between the two cities dates back to 1931 when Clyde Pangborn and his co-pilot Hugh Herndon flew the first non-stop transpacific flight originating from a beach in Misawa City and 200 hours later landed in Wenatchee, Washington.
