Moody’s Phase 1 and Phase 2 exercise tested the 23rd Wing’s ability to prepare, deploy and execute their mission at a moment’s notice.

The 723rd AMXS was tasked with folding HH-60s in preparation for transport in a larger aircraft and unfolding them once they arrive at their final destination.

During folding, the rotor blades are revolved and aligned with the body of the helicopter, and fastened into place.
