JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii - An RQ-4 Global Hawk, assigned to the 69th Reconnaissance Group, Detachment 1, Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, lands at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 1, 2018, for a temporary intra-theater deployment. The movement increases operations for Global Hawks during months of inclement weather endured at Andersen, such as typhoons and other scenarios which have the potential to hinder readiness.The Andersen-based RQ-4s were deployed to Yokota AB, Japan, in 2017 and to Misawa AB in 2014 and 2015 for similar reasons. The United States continues to deploy its most advanced capabilities to Japan, including the Global Hawk, as part of the commitment to the security and stability of Japan.
