U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Ryan Okahara, the Hawaii Air National Guard commander and Indonesia Air Force Air First Marshal Widyargo Ikoputra, the Iswahjudi Air Force Base commander, receives a brief from F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots from both nations prior to the Cope West 19 closing ceremony at Sam Ratulangi International Airport, Manado, Indonesia, June 28. Over the course of the two-week exercise, the two services flew a combined total of 130 sorties, affording both countries the opportunity to exchange knowledge and tactical consideration in modern air combat warfare during close air support training and air-to-air fighter training. Simultaneously, eight subject-matter expert exchanges occurred across various career fields. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie Hutto)
