While opening up the hatch of this U.S. Air Force C-130 in flight is a little more than toggling a switch; it takes the combined skills of the six- to seven-person crew for all moving parts to gel for a precision drop of supplies or personnel. U.S. and Canadian rescue forces spent sharpening their skills in a joint search and rescue training exercise this winter in and around the Florida Keys. U.S. Airmen from the 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., went head-to-head with Canadian Airmen from 17 Wing, Winnipeg. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Natasha Dowridge)
