Jolly Green Airmen conduct rescue training

A U.S. Air Force HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter assigned to the 33rd Rescue Squadron on Kadena Air Base, Japan, flies over Okinawa during a training exercise March 21, 2014. During the training, members of the 33rd RQS practiced recovery operations for a simulated downed pilot in a hostile environment. The Air Force has used Pave Hawks since 1982 in an array of combat and humanitarian search and rescue operations. Air Force rescue squadrons frequently train on a multitude of scenarios in order to stay prepared for potential real-world contingencies and operations.
