I've flown over 100 PARPRO missions while serving in the 55th SRW, including many out of Yokota Air Base, and none of my pilots would have asked us Ravens to punch out over a runway.
In contrast the peripheral PARPRO missions were far more deadly, and many US Navy and Air Force aircraft were lost over the years.
But PARPRO missions continued as they had since the 1940s.
