Operation Northern Strike

A C-130 Hercules from the 182nd Airlift Wing, Illinois Air National Guard, takes off from the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, Aug. 13, 2013, as two Airmen from the 127th Wing, Michigan Air National Guard, talk in front of an A-10 Thunderbolt II. The aircraft were both flying at Alpena in support of Operation Northern Strike, a joint military exercise that involved military personnel from more than a dozen different states and was centered around Alpena and the Camp Grayling Maneuvering Training Center, both in northern Michigan.
