Up, up and away

Twelve U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons, assigned to the 35th Fighter Wing, taxi and take off at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 21, 2017. In addition to the 12 F-16s, U.S. Navy EA-18Gs pilots, assigned to the “Garudas” Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 134, flew with the 13 and 14th Fighter Squadron, to enhance readiness and understanding of how the two airframes operate hand-in-hand during real-world missions. The VAQ-134 is currently deployed to Misawa AB from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington, as part of a six-month Theater Security Package, which is designed to enhance regional security in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
