Keen Sword Rescue Squadrons Take Flight

A U.S. Air Force pararescueman from the 212th Rescue Squadron repels from one of the 33rd Rescue Squadron's HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters to save a simulated drowning victim in a scenario that was part of exercise Keen Sword 2015 near Komatsu Air Base, Japan, Nov. 12, 2014. The scenario was designed for joint-bilateral training with Japan Self-Defense Force rescue crews. The training allows aircrews and pararescuemen to practice what they would do in a real world situation. The 212th RQS is assigned to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, and the 33rd RQS is assigned to Kadena Air Base, Japan. (U.S. Air Force photo by 2nd Lt. Erik Anthony/Released)
