Harris gets glimpse of aerial firefighting training

Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System-qualified C-130 aircraft commander, Lt. Col. Robert Fairbanks of the 731st Airlift Squadron, right, shows Maj. Gen. Stayce Harris, 22nd Air Force commander, a MAFFS-equipped C-130 during her visit to the 302nd Airlift Wing here May 15, 2015. The general spent two days with the Air Force Reserve Command wing to get a firsthand look at annual MAFFS training. “That was a great introduction into what we do with the MAFFS mission here at the 302nd,” said Harris. “It is challenging flying. Everyone takes it very seriously because, at the end of the day, what we’re trying to do is save lives and protect property from destruction. They’re challenging situations but every crewmember here is expertly trained and absolutely ready for it.” (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Nathan Federico)
