Mobility Airmen continue aeromedical evacuation mission


U.S. Air Force Airmen assigned to the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing decontaminate a Transport Isolation System on a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, after the transport of a potentially infectious patient to Ramstein Air Base, May 8. The mission marked the fourth mission and the 14th patient moved using the TIS since its first operational use on April 10. The TIS is an infectious disease containment unit designed to minimize contamination risk to aircrew and medical attendants while allowing in-flight medical care for patients afflicted by a disease like coronavirus disease 2019. Presently, Air Mobility Command has multiple TIS Force Packages on alert at Ramstein, Travis AFB, and Joint Base Charleston, to support global requirements that may arise.
