Stepping back in time

Chief Master Sgt. James D. Riley, chief loadmaster with the Air Force Reserve’s 302nd Airlift Wing steps away from a PT-47, a modified version of the DC-3 at Phitsanulok Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand. As a child, Chief Riley visited the same aircraft with his Thai neighbor. The Chief returned to Thailand as one of seven members of the Air Force Reserve’s 302 AW, based at Peterson AFB, Colo. to provide expert training to RTAF members on safe and effective C-130 MAFFS operations. This event marks the first time the Air Force Reserve has sent delegates to train a foreign Air Force on use of the MAFFS equipment. (U.S. Air Force photo/Capt. Jody L. Ritchie)
