Mailed Fist: Marines conduct arming and refueling exercise

Two AH-1W Super Cobras from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467 based at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., prepare to land at a forward arming and refueling point at Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue, N.C., June 19. A FARP can be quickly set up in remote locations and used to rapidly refuel and arm an aircraft, allowing the Marines and aircraft to get back in the air to continue their mission. The training was part of Exercise Mailed Fist, a large-scale exercise conducted by the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing. (Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. S.T. Stewart)
