Building a bridge can come with many challenges, especially when the materials are water and below freezing temperatures. Airmen from the 354th Civil Engineer Squadron head to Delta Junction, Alaska, each year to construct a bridge made of ice, spending weeks at a time in the Alaskan wilderness transporting heavy equipment and materials over the ice bridge to prepare for the next RED FLAG-Alaska season.
