    160715-N-ZZ999-003 PACIFIC OCEAN (July 15, 2016) - A Aérospatiale Alouette III from the French Navy Floréal-class frigate FS Prairial (F 731) lands on the flight deck of littoral combat ship USS Coronado (LCS 4) during maritime exercises as part of Rim of the Pacific 2016. The aircraft is the first non-U.S. aircraft to land of the Coronado. Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy photo by Intelligence Specialist 2nd Class Andrew Pilato/Released)
