A U.S. Air Force HH-60G Pave Hawk rescue helicopter assigned to the Alaska Air National Guard's 210th Rescue Squadron Detachment 1 departs an extraction point with an A-10 pilot safely on board as an A-10 Thunderbolt II loiters nearby to provide close air support as part of a personnel recovery exercise June 14, 2016, at a training site inside the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex, during RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 16-2. The 210th RQS Det 1, based at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, is one of many U.S. and partner nation units participating in RF-A 16-2, a Pacific Air Forces commander-directed exercise that allows commanders to train for full spectrum engagements in the largest instrumented air, ground and electronic combat training range in the world.
