36th Airlift Squadron passes down their airlifting knowledge
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Gary Patterson, 36th Airlift Squadron C-130 Hercules aircraft loadmaster, discusses his job with Philippine Air Force (PAF) loadmasters from the 220th Airlift Wing April 7, 2016, during an Exercise Balikatan 2016 training session on Mactan-Benito Ebuen Air Base, Philippines. Loadmasters from the PAF not only have their loadmaster duties, but also have one or two additional jobs varying from maintenance to combat roles. Bilateral training increases our armed forces’ ability to respond quickly and work together effectively in the event of natural disasters and other crises that threaten public safety and health.
