Rapid Runway Repair

Gulfport, Miss. -- Staff Sgt. Michael Casey uses a road grader to level excess gravel while repairing a section of "bomb-damaged" runway. Members of the the 403rd Civil Engineer Squadron practiced their wartime skills in a remote area of of the Combat Readiness Training Center, Gulfport at February's Unit Training Assembly. The scenario involved the rapid repair of a section of runway rendered unusable by a bomb attack. Using a combination of heavy equipment, Airmen from the squadron quickly filled the "bomb" crater with gravel and smoothed it over. In addition, CES firefighters also trained in the area, responding to emergency situations in various Mission Oriented Proctective Posture levels. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Tech. Sgt. Michael Duhe)
