Several AH-1Z’s with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron (HMLA) 169, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), staged for pre-flight inspection at Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb 15. In a dynamic display of strength, MAG-39, launched 82 attack, utility and assault support aircraft. MAG-39 aircrews taxied and launched their aircraft with a precision akin to that displayed during close order drill. Over the course of several hours, more than 100 aircraft from MAG-13 and MAG-39 took to the skies over Southern California, proving 3rd MAW’s capability to “fix, Fly, Fight” and, when needed advance at a moment’s notice.
