U.S. Air Force personnel with the 18th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, Kadena Air Base, Japan, sit inside a life raft before being "rescued" by a U.S. Navy SH-60 Seahawk from the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk during water mass casualty training at White Beach Naval Station, Okinawa, Japan, Aug. 8, 2005. Air Force HH-60 helicopters from the 33rd Rescue Squadron, Kadena Air Base, and Navy helicopters from Kitty Hawk, participated in the training. The Joint Air and Sea Exercise provides a unique opportunity for air and naval forces to work together in a maritime environment, including training with the U.S. carrier strike group and attached air wing.
