Hornets perform arrested landing during PHIBLEX 14

An F/A-18C Hornet comes to a complete stop at Clark Air Field, Pampanga, Republic of the Philippines, Oct. 2 during a field arrestment exercise as part of Amphibious Landing Exercise 2014. These field arrestment systems on aircraft carriers are an essential component of naval aviation; however, they are also found at land-based airfields for expeditionary and emergency use. PHIBLEX 14 is designed to improve Philippine-U.S. interoperability, increase readiness, and enhance the ability for a bilateral force to respond to natural disasters or other regional contingencies. The aircraft is with Marine Fighter Squadron 232, currently assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 12, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, as part of the Marine Corps’ unit deployment program.
