The rushing wind whipped around Airmen on the open ramp of a C-130J Super Hercules as the last rays of the sun glistened off the surface of the ocean and illuminated the islands sprinkled along the Greek coastline.

The three aircrafts raced across the sky, weaving around each other while the sun slipped lazily to sleep, leaving everything dark in its wake.
