DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Three U.S Navy HH-60H Seahawk helicopters will start temporary joint training here starting Oct. 11. 

The visiting crew will be conducting practice scenarios in the southern Arizona's military training ranges alongside the A-10 Thunderbolt squadrons, Combat Search and Rescue units here. 

The HH-60H helicopters, similar to the HH-60G's stationed here, are coming out of the Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, Calif.

Training scheduled to last until Oct 30 will test the skills of the crews and strengthen joint operations between the military services.
