Observers watch a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules with the 36th Airlift Squadron from Yokota Air Base, Japan, take off of an austere runway used for training during RED FLAG-Alaska at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Aug. 14, 2015. The training allowed C-130 aircrew to practice austere landings and take offs, combat offloads and supply drops, but also allowed friendly competition between participating Air Forces: U.S. Air Force, Japan Air Self-Defense Force, Royal Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and Royal Thai Air Force. Seasoned C-130 aircrew from each country judged the training exercises from the ground, allotting points based off predetermined timing and accuracy requirements. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
