U.S. Air Force F-22 pilots at Joint Base Langley-Eustis work closely with U.S. Air Force T-38 Talon pilots, who pose as adversary air, to improve their war-fighter capabilities. However, before pilots can perform their duties, they must sharpen their skills and ensure they have proper documentation before they fly. T-38 pilots assigned to the 71st Fighter Training Squadron rely on a 3-person team, known as the squadron aviation resource managers, who ensure they are “good-to-go” when it comes to being legally qualified to fly.

Outfitted in white overalls, gloves, boots, earplugs and a face shield, two U.S. Air Force Airmen cautiously perform their duties while surrounded by a shroud of vapors. They are donned in gear meant to protect them from the very substance that helps to protect lives at high altitudes. The scene resembles that of a science fiction movie— moving in slow motion as the various sounds of the flightline are subconsciously replaced by the eerie sound of shallow breaths in a mask. At Joint Base Langley-Eustis, the Airmen assigned to the 733rd Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels facility perform one of their many responsibilities, ensuring pilots have oxygen at high altitudes.
