MH-53J Pave Low IIIE - Green Hornets

FILE PHOTO—The 20th Special Operations Squadron, located at Hurlburt Field, Fla., is one of eight flying squadrons within the 16th Special Operations Wing. Known as the “Green Hornets,” the 20th SOS flies the MH-53J Pave Low IIIE, the Air Force’s most sophisticated helicopter. The primary mission of the 20th SOS is to conduct day or night low level penetration into hostile enemy territory, to accomplish clandestine infiltration and exfiltration, aerial gunnery support and resupply of special operations forces throughout the world. These operations involve tactical low-level navigation, night vision goggle operations, airland and airdrop techniques and over-water operations. The unique capabilities of the MH-53J Pave Low allow the 20th to operate from unprepared landing zones in any type of terrain and from otherwise inaccessible areas.
