The lives of C-130J loadmasters

U.S. Air Force Capt. Joshua Payne, left, and Staff Sgt. Daniel Simonsen, 39th Airlift Squadron pilot and loadmaster, scan the area for towering structures, June 30, 2015, at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas. When performing cargo drops, the C-130J Super Hercules flies at a low altitude of 300 feet to avoid detection so ensuring there are no tall structures is vital to the mission.
