A U.S. Global Hawk surveillance drone prepares to land at the Misawa Air Base in Misawa, northern Japan, Saturday, May 24, 2014. The U.S. began sending long-range Global Hawk surveillance drones to Japan this month for rotational deployments. They are intended to help step up surveillance around the disputed islands in the East China Sea, called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, a source of heated debate between the two countries over claims to the remote territories.
