Fix, Fly, Fight: MAG-13 & 39 flex muscle
Two AH-1Zs with Marine Light Attack Squadron (HMLA) 469, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), fly over Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, Calif., during a training exercise, Feb. 15. In a dynamic display of strength, MAG-39, launched 82 attack, utility and assault support aircraft. Maintainers and ground support crews watched with pride and a strong sense of accomplishment as each of their aircraft fulfilled its role in formation, took to the sky, then disappeared over the horizon. 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.
