U.S. airmen prepare to deploy from Kadena Air Base, Japan, to participate in Rim of the Pacific, a biennial exercise, July 6, 2014. The airmen deployed earlier than planned due to a massive typhoon predicted to hit Okinawa with wind gusts nearing 200 mph. The exercise is the world’s largest international maritime training event involving sea and air elements.
