MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - An F/A-18E Super Hornet with Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 195 lands at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan, Nov. 28, 2017. VFA-195 arrived at MCAS Iwakuni as part of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5’s relocation from Naval Air Facility (NAF) Atsugi, Japan. The relocation of CVW-5 from NAF Atsugi to MCAS Iwakuni fulfills the final Defense Policy Review Initiative objective. The relocation is in accordance with the United States’ strategic vision for the rebalance in the Indo-Asia Pacific Region and does much to further strengthen the U.S.-Japan security alliance.
