KC-130J Fuels Marine Ground Forces during Forager Fury

12/05/2012: A KC-130J Hercules aircraft landed at Tinian’s West Field Nov. 30 during exercise Forager Fury 2012. 

The aircraft brought a P-19 aircraft rescue and firefighting truck which is an important safety vehicle for Marine Aircraft Group 12’s execution of the exercise.

Tinian, an island of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, will play host for nearly 100 Marines and sailors during FF12.

The goal of FF12, which will run through Dec. 19, is to allow MAG-12 to demonstrate their ability to displace rapidly and generate significant combat power in an expeditionary environment. 

The aircraft is with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.
