U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Brian McAfee, 71st Rescue Squadron loadmaster, removes an access hatch during pre-flight checks in an HC-130J Combat King II, July 29, 2016, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. This flight marked the first time an HC-130J landed at the unimproved landing zone on Bemiss Field, part of Grand Bay Bombing and Gunnery Range, which was previously used for airdrops and helicopter landings. The landing validated the pilot’s training for future operations in austere locations and met requirements for training that cannot be accomplished on paved runways or assault strips.
