Total force effort ensures successful typhoon evacuation

A C-17 Globemaster III assigned to the Hawaii Air National Guard at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, arrives at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, July 15, 2015, after evacuating more than 125 Department of Defense members from Wake Island in preparation for potential surges caused by Typhoon Halola. An evacuation mission such as this highlights Pacific Air Force’s flexibility to generate air response quickly across the theater, which is a key component to air power. The DoD personnel are part of the Pacific Air Forces Regional Support Center and 11th Air Force mission on Wake Island, which is a strategic location within the Pacific and also a divert airfield for overseas flights.
