An exercise transporting groups of people on helicopters from one place to another in a hostile landing zone. 

Officials said it has been more than ten years since an operation of this type and magnitude has been conducted. 

The operation is different compared to others because it involves multiple agencies and air and ground combat tactics. 

More than a thousand personnel and 20 aircraft participated in Steel Pike 19. The name has historical significance as it was the name used during an operation in Vietnam.
