Pope Airmen support back-to-back airdrop exercises

Senior Airman Wesley Zech, a 43d Operations Support Squadron joint airdrop inspector, completes paperwork to clear heavy equipment for airdrop after an inspection at the Army’s Heavy Drop Rigging Facility here April 26. Zech worked with fellow 43d OSS inspectors to ensure more than 200 tons of cargo were ready for airdrop from Air Force C-17s and C-130s flying out of Pope Field during a large package joint training exercise April 26-30. The 43d OSS is part of the Air Force’s 43d Air Mobility Operations Group, which provides 24/7 operational and training mission support for visiting Air Mobility Command aircraft and crews, for the 82nd Airborne Division and other Army units here, and for joint special forces units at Fort Bragg.
