    Capt. Nick M. Korent, a simulated downed pilot, rushes to a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366, as part of a training Tactical Recovery of Aircraft or Personnel mission in the North Carolina Croatan National Forest, June 22. Korent, an AH-1W Super Cobra pilot, and native of Houlton, Wis., said being in the role of the rescued pilot really put the training in perspective. 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.
