9th AS Pelicans fly southwest for joint training
Staff Sgt. Justin Thomas, 9th Airlift Squadron noncommissioned officer in charge of loadmaster training, climbs the troop deck stairs of a Dover Air Force Base C-5M Super Galaxy during a Major Command Service Tail Trainer at Holloman AFB, New Mexico, June 4, 2021. The 9th AS performs MSTTs to expedite upgrade and qualification training for C-5M loadmasters and flight engineers. Of the 350 tasks needed to be a fully qualified loadmaster, roughly half can be completed during an MSTT, reducing the time of training by up to 35 days.
