Dobbins flies tactical airlift training mission at Youngstown
Staff Sgt. Jed Pickett, 700th Aerial Squadron loadmaster, talks with the pilot as a C-130 Hercules backs up on the military ramp at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, Aug. 7, 2018. When backing an aircraft, the loadmasters are responsible for directing the pilots by looking out the back of the aircraft and communicating what to do. This is useful to navigate small or congested airfields that don’t have much space, such as those that may be encountered in theater. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Miles Wilson)
