Kadena Air Base, Japan -- A Guardian Angel rescue craft and a rigged alternate method zodiac are airdropped out of a C-17 Globemaster from Alaska Air National Guard’s 249th Airlift Squadron Oct. 31, 2015, near the coast of White Beach Naval Base, Japan. The aircraft delivered a Guardian Angel rescue team from Alaska ANG’s 212th Rescue Squadron and equipment as part of a long-range search and rescue exercise. The 249th AS is the only C-17 unit qualified to deliver rescue jumpmaster procedures. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Arlene Carlos/Released)
