Maj. Gen. Harris and MAFFS training

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. C-130 pilot Lt. Col. Robert Fairbanks, right, shows Maj. Gen. Stayce Harris, 22nd Air Force commander, a Modular Airborne Fire Fighting-equipped C-130 during her visit to the 302nd Airlift Wing here May 15, 2015. The general spent two days with the Air Force Reserve Command wing to get a firsthand look at MAFFS training. “That was a great introduction into what we do with the MAFFS mission here at the 302nd. It is challenging flying. And everyone takes it very seriously and to heart because, at the end of the day, what we’re trying to do is protect and save lives and properties from destruction. And so I appreciated that, and it really brought it to home the type of work that they’re doing. They’re challenging, once again, challenging situations with Mother Nature, they absolutely are. But every crew member here is absolutely ready for it,” said Harris.
