BALAD AIR BASE, Iraq -- Tech. Sgt. James Brady, 777th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron flight engineer, communicates with the crew chief to check if the exterior lights of a C-130 Hercules are operating properly. Communication between the flight engineer and the crew chief on the floor is vital because it allows Sergeant Brady to ensure the aircraft is responding to adjustments he makes inside prior to take off. Sergeant Brady is deployed from Little Rock Air Force Base.
