AV-8B Harrier II pilots with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 Reinforced, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, practice alternate landing techniques on the flight deck of USS Kearsarge, Jan. 18, 2011. Normally the fighter jet lands  headed from stern to bow. The alternate techniques are practiced in case the ship is unable to maneuver into position for the aircraft’s safest landing conditions. Elements of 26th MEU debarked the ships of Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group to conduct sustainment training and exercises with regional allies and partners in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
