Imagine being strapped into the back of a C-130J Super Hercules on a litter, fighting to breathe while being whisked toward a hospital that can provide critical care. Not only are there pilots, navigators and loadmasters ensuring the aircraft makes it to the hospital safely, there are flight nurses and aeromedical evacuation technicians standing by to administer medical procedures, check equipment and respond to any emergencies that could arise during the flight. Today the 36th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron conducted their first training mission out of Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., practicing this very scenario.
