Army Guard Chinook gives Air Force Humvee a lift. The winds at Travis are unrelenting. They constantly howl through the base and challenge the most advanced of pilots. Just as the wind here won’t quit, neither will Travis Airmen when it comes to training for the next mission at hand.
Members of the 621st Contingency Response Wing, 60th Aerial Port Squadron and the California Army National Guard teamed up to perform sling-load training with a CH-47 Chinook and two Humvees Nov. 21 at Travis.
The training was based on a real-world humanitarian relief scenario, similar to the one currently unfolding in the Philippines after the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan.
