    10 EAEF: Flight that saves lives

    In the frigid and dim cargo hold of a C-17 Globemaster III, Airmen strive to save the lives of injured service members while being tormented by the deafening rumble of four engines. These Airmen are the patients’ best option for medical care and transportation to a hospital.

Tino Weichel, 86th Maintenance Squadron aero repair aircraft mechanic, describes capabilities of the 86th Maintenance Group to Brig. Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr., 86th Airlift Wing commander, during a demonstration Aug. 31 on Ramstein. The 86 MXG maintains U.S. Air Forces in Europe's only assigned distinguished visitor airlift and 24/7 aeromedical evacuation operations.

86 MXG keeps Ramstein ‘Forward, Ready, Now’

Every wheel is important with its specific function, but when one gear malfunctions, the whole mechanism suffers. The 86th Maintenance Group is an element of Ramstein that keeps the mission pushing forward.
