Global Hawk arrives at Misawa

A RQ-4 Global Hawk from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam is towed down the taxiway at Misawa Air Base, Japan, May 24, 2014. The Global Hawk is on a temporary rotation to Japan, in part, as a result of the adverse impact of inclement summer weather on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions operations in Guam. Given the number of sorties lost due to typhoons and thunderstorms, the need to look for alternate summer basing options arose. Misawa AB was chosen as an ideal location for the Global Hawk, its equipment and personnel. (U.S. Air Force Photo/ Staff Sgt. Tong Duong)
