YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma brought its world-class training to three locations in Yuma Friday, where spectators can witness emergency military operations.
Twice a year, MCAS Yuma hosts a weapons and tactics instructor course (WTI) where Marines from all over the country come for seven weeks to train for various real-life scenarios.
On Friday, that training will be at Kiwanis Park, Arizona Western College (AWC), and Crane Middle School. WTI students will be conducting a foreign humanitarian assistance operation.
This training aims to provide the students with realistic training for a mission they may execute in real-world operations.
Between 4 pm to 10 pm, spectators can see up to five different military aircrafts landing around Yuma.
