Joshua Masopust, 14th Fighter Squadron pilot, Misawa Air Force Base, Japan, conducts pre-flight inspection of an F-16 Fighting Falcon during Green Flag-West 12-8, which runs from June 8-22. The Green Flag-West exercise provides cutting-edge training for air-to-ground missions, bringing combat air forces units from the DOD and U.S. Allies together with ground force units at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Cal.
