Passengers board a Royal Air Force HC3 Merlin helicopter at the newly christened United Kingdom rotary passenger handling facility aboard Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, March 26. Brig. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant, commanding general of 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), and Group Captain Jock Brown, commander of the U.K.’s Task Force Jaguar, were on hand to celebrate the refurbishment of the terminal. The updates feature dual refueling points. U.S. and U.K. aircraft typically refuel on opposite sides; the dual fuel points increase efficiency and collaboration between the two nations.
