A military exercise got underway at Andersen Air Force Base today that began a parachute training drop.
Video of the drop has been widely posted on social media.
A release from Andersen AFB Sunday said the exercise will consist of several military aircraft operating in the airspace near Andersen AFB and the A. B. Won Pat International Airport.
Residents in the surrounding areas should not be alarmed if they see or hear increased activity over the next several days as a result of the exercise.
This exercise and other training events support military readiness and are critical to developing the skills needed to respond to operational missions throughout the region to ensure a stable, free, and open Indo-Pacific.
