Growling in RF-A 16-1

Aviation Electronic Technician Chief Christopher Fink, from VAQ-137, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington, stands in the jet wash of an EA-18G Growler aircraft after supervising the launch of two jets for a sortie May 9, 2016, during RED-FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 16-1 at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The aircraft logged more than 500 tactical flying hours during RF-A 16-1, which requires maintainers to work around the clock. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Shawn Nickel/Released)
