INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey --
Members of the 39th Maintenance Squadron's transient alert crash and recovery section showcase the capabilities of their newly acquired pneumatic lifting bags. The section uses lifting bags to enable personnel to quickly and safely lift or move a crashed, damaged or disabled aircraft. As one of several recovery methods, lifting bags assist the section with performing their primary mission of ensuring the runway is clear and postured to support NATO’s southern region.
