Two CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366, land to recover a simulated downed pilot as part of a Tactical Recovery of Aircraft or Personnel training mission in the North Carolina Croatan National Forest, June 22. The Marine Corps’ most recent high profile TRAP mission was in rescue of a downed U.S. Air Force pilot in Libya, March 2011. The missions are unique to the Marine Corps because of its ability to act on a moment’s notice anywhere in the world. The training TRAP mission June 22 concluded Exercise Mailed Fist, a week-long large-scale exercise launched by the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing to refine the Marine Corps’ East Coast aviation elements.
