Air Force 'Resilient Typhoon' exercise starts next Monday
The U.S. Air Force is scheduled to conduct an exercise with airmen and aircraft operating from Guam, Tinian, Saipan, The Federated States of Micronesia (Yap) and Palau from April 22 to 26. The exercise, called Resilient Typhoon, involves fighter and mobility aircraft gathering at and then dispersing from Andersen Air Force Base, to airfields across Micronesia.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to train here and validate Pacific Air Forces' and our regional partners' ability to maintain readiness in support of this vital area," said Maj. Phil Ventura, a Pacific Air Forces spokesperson. During the exercise, the general public should expect to see and hear an increase in military aviation activities in and around Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport in Guam; the Saipan and Tinian International Airports in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Yap International Airport in the Federated States of Micronesia and the Babelthuap/Koror Airport in the Republic of Palau. "Our airmen are committed to operating in a safe and environmentally-conscious manner," Ventura said. "We look forward to working with our local partners and enjoying the world-renowned hospitality in Guam, the CNMI, FSM and Palau."
