Hawaii based Airmen deploy to RED FLAG-Alaska

Peter Newton and Staff Sgt. Keala Matsumoto, crew chiefs from the 15th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, do a last-minute repair of a rail-lock on a C-17 Globemaster III preparing for an early morning departure to Alaska June 6 for the RED FLAG-Alaska military exercise. RED FLAG-Alaska is one of the largest international air-combat employment exercises in the world and is designed to test the specific capabilities of the military units that take part in the exercise and increase their chance of survival during actual combat.
