Ready for takeoff
A KC-135 Stratotanker taxies to the runway at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, March 27, 2016. Ensuring aircraft take off safely is one of the many missions of the 379th Operations Support Squadron’s Airfield Management team. The team inspects the airfield every day, which includes more than 49 million square feet of pavement. Last year, the team supported more than 20,000 sorties. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
