Conducting SERE training at Ex Mobility Guardian 17 - our crew getting dropped off by a USAF CH-47 into the Yakima Training Centre

During Ex Mobility Guardian our crew conducted SERE Training: Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape. The crew were unexpectedly bundled into a CH-47 Chinook and dropped off into the Yakima Training Range, where they were met by United States Air Force (USAF) and RNZAF instructors. After some practical training the team called in an air drop of supplies, before being extracted by Chinook again at the end of the day.
