89 AW competes in 2011 AMC Rodeo
The 89th Aerial Port Squadron here paired up with a March AFB C-17 team during the Engines Running On/Offload competition during the 2011 Air Mobility Command Rodeo Competition which took place at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. from July 24-29. The 89th Aerial Port Squadron conducted a cargo on/offload which simulated a cargo drop occurring in the Area of Respnsibility. Teams were required to on/offload a HMMWV (Humvee) with an attached trailer and a 25-ton Next Generation Small Loader (NGSL). The competition was timed and teams were scored on speed, team work, communication with the aircrew and securing the cargo load. (U.S. Air Force photo by Major Michelle Lai)
