Besides an F-35 in action, the U.S. Air Force has featured several other pics including a Pave Hawk chopper, B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber and a C-17.

Every week, the United States Air Force likes to showcase its militaryin a series of glorious, high-resolution photographs that have been taken by its photographers. This week, we have a few of those featured in this article, with some fascinating images making the cut. First up, we have in the featured image the latest fighter jet, the F-35, some of which have recently been scrambled for an excercise in the Middle East. This is the F-35 Demonstration Team, with pilot Capt Kristin Wolfe flying during practice for the 2020 Ocean City Air Show at Ocean City, Md on August 14th, 2020. There were other displays from the USAF on offer too, including the Thunderbirds and F-22 and A-10 Demonstration Teams.

Next up, we have this head-on shot of the HH-60G Pave Hawk from the 55th Rescue Squadron. The aircraft is seen turnings its rotors, as part of a pre-flight inspection on the 17thof August, while on the ground at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho. The 55th is participating in exercise Gunfighter Flag 20-1. This is where they train with joint international partners to complete combat and rescue exercises.

One of the most impressive aircraft in the USAF fleet is the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber. The F-117 Stealth Fighter may no longer be flying, but the B-2 is and here we have one from the 393rd Expeditionary Bomb Squadron deployed from Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. Senior Airman Robert Witkowski and Staff Sergeant Mark Farrar are preparing their B-2 Spirit for takeoff at Naval Support Facility Diego Garcia.

Finally, in the midst of the tragedy of the Beirut port explosion in Lebanon, we see a C-17 Globemaster III. The Globemaster, among the largest aircraft in U.S. Air Force service, is seen at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, being loaded up with humanitarian aid bound for the devastated city, with critical supplies in the cargo hold which is being loaded on August 7th, 2020.
