U.S. Air Force F-15 Eagles assigned to the 67th Fighter Squadron, Kadena Air Base, Japan, prepare to takeoff during Exercise Cope North 2017 at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, Feb. 22, 2017. Beginning in 1978 as a quarterly bilateral exercise held at Misawa AB, Japan, Cope North was moved to Andersen AFB in 1999. Today, the annual exercise serves as a keystone event to promote stability and security throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific by enabling regional forces to hone vital readiness skills critical to maintaining regional stability.
