Crews from McChord and other Air Mobility Command bases rode out the storm while waiting to resume operations during Large Package Week, a quarterly exercise which provides vital airlift training for Air Force crews from Pope and AMC bases nationwide, and for Fort Bragg Army paratroopers and support units.

Brian Ferguson) Air Force, Army planners find ways to see greater jump in airdrops
An arriving C-130 Hercules taxies to a large hangar where about 60 Army paratroopers wait to board. Lugging about 100 pounds of gear, the Soldiers quickly line up and load into the aircraft as its four idling engines blow hot gusts over the tarmac. Minutes later, the plane is flying at 150 mph and the paratroopers jump, being whisked away in a rush of fresh air during the routine training mission -- one of hundreds held each year at Pope Army Airfield, North Carolina. While short lived, these airdrops are meticulously prepared months ahead by dozens of Air Force and Army planners. Their goal: to get Airmen and Soldiers primed to rapidly respond to urgent combat or humanitarian efforts.

A Transportation Isolation System (TIS) is loaded onto a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft during Exercise Mobilty Solace at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., Aug. 15, 2016. Mobility Solace provides Air Mobility Command, working with joint partners, the opportunity to evaluate the protocols and operational sequences of moving multiple patients exposed or infected with Ebola using the TIS, while also minimizing the risks to aircrew, medical attendants and the airframe. The TIS is a modular, scalable system, composed of at least one isolation pallet for patient transportation and care, one pallet configured as an "antechamber" to provide medical members with an enclosed space to safely decontaminate and remove their personal protective equipment before exiting.
