Staff Sgt. Katherine Stanton, 15th Airlift Squadron loadmaster, completes one-on-one hypoxia training in the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device and Hypoxia Familiarization Trainer. For the training, Airmen fly a C-17 flight task simulation as the ROBD precisely mixes nitrogen and reduced oxygen to equivalent oxygen concentrations at higher altitudes. This allows Airmen to see how hypoxia affects their motor skills and to experience their symptoms in a low risk environment. Aircrew training device saves AMC time, money

A C-5M Galaxy aircraft rests on six fuselage jacks for main landing gear repair on Ramstein Air Base, Germany, May 3, 2017. Flying out of Travis Air Force Base, Calif., to Ramstein, the aircraft’s number four main landing gear malfunctioned, and the crew had to use the emergency backup system to make a safe landing. Airmen assigned to the 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron and 60th AMXS jacked the aircraft to repair it. (U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Tryphena Mayhugh) AMC maintainers combine skills, repair grounded C-5M at Ramstein
Normally when a C-5M Galaxy is off the ground, it is soaring thousands of feet above the world. For one particular C-5 flying out of Travis Air Force Base, Calif., that was not the case when a malfunctioning landing gear caused it to be raised only a few feet above the ground inside a hangar. “We were coming down to land, the pilots threw the gear down and the number four main landing gear did not extend, so they had to emergency extend it,” said Staff Sgt. Cesar Mardirossian, 60th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron flying crew chief. “We were able to land safely and we had to jack the aircraft.” Mardirossian worked alongside Airmen assigned to the 721st AMXS to jack, inspect, and repair the aircraft’s landing gear.
