Akiko Ihara, a female flight deck crew of Japanese helicopter carrier Kaga, guides for the landing of a SH-60K Sea Hawk helicopter on the flight deck in the Indian Ocean, Indonesia, September 24, 2018. "Women all over the world are working in a wider number of areas and I think Japan needs to be a part of that," said Ihara. "We all work in different teams around the ship but we are all friends," Ihara added. "We do sometimes moan a little about our male colleagues."
