U.S. Air Force Maj. Richard Smeeding, Pacific Air Forces Demonstration Team pilot, performs an aerial manuever during the Pacific Partners Air Festival at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 10, 2017. Smeeding performed several maneuvers demonstrating the compact, multi-role fighter F-16’s combat capabilities. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attacks. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie Hutto)
