USAF, Canadian forces partner for unique training

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Ryan Maxey (right) and Airman 1st Class Tyler Wilson, 41st Airlift Squadron Loadmasters, watch out of the back of their C-130J after a simulated cargo drop while navigating through the Canadian Rockies during the Fanatic Pegasus exercise with Royal Canadian air forces in Alberta, Canada, on April 20. This is the first time American forces have participated in this exercise, which establishes air and ground forces in unfamiliar terrain to work on communication and rapid deployment of those resources..
