Members of the 14th and 15th Airlift Squadrons deliver a Federal Aviation Administration air traffic control mobile tower from Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, to the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, Sept. 12. The mobile ATC tower was sent in response to Hurricane Irma to assist St. Thomas officials in conducting 24 hour airfield operations for civilian and military aircraft. The tower is the only mobile ATC tower in the world and the flight was the first time an ATC tower had been delivered by a military aircraft.
