    Tech. Sgt. Napoleon Ortiz (left) and Staff Sgt. Joseph Arcega, loadmasters with the 36th Airlift Squadron, sit on the ramp of a C-130J Super Hercules in flight after a low-cost, low-altitude airdrop during Operation Christmas Drop Dec. 11, 2017, near the island of Fais. Christmas Drop allows aircrews to train critical humanitarian assistance/disaster relief airdrop techniques over unsurveyed drop zones alongside international partners: the Japan Air Self Defense Force (Koku Jieitai) and Royal Australian Air Force. By continuing to work closely with U.S. allies and partners, Pacific Air Forces teams deter aggression, increase shared operational capacity, and maintain peace and stability in the Indo-Asia Pacific region.
