317th AW completes ATSO exercise

U.S. Air Force Capt. Nicolas Barragan, 39th Airlift Squadron C-130J Super Hercules pilot, pilots the aircraft while wearing aircrew eye and respiratory protection system equipment for an exercise at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, May 23, 2018. The crew executed a combat offload, which is used in austere locations to quickly offload cargo without forklifts. This is done by removing all restraints on the pallet, applying power and releasing the brakes to allow the cargo to roll out the back of the aircraft. These actions were accomplished as part of a 317th Airlift Wing ability to survive and operate exercise. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Mercedes Porter)
