U.S. Air Force Maj. Kyle Gauthier, 37th Airlift Squadron assistant director of operations, briefs Airmen during a simulated coronavirus disease 2019 patient transfer training at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, April 30, 2020. Airmen assigned to the 86th Operations Group, 86th Medical Group and 86th Maintenance Group participated in the simulated open-air movement of COVID-19 positive patients on a C-130J Super Hercules aircraft. The collective effort ensured that all disinfecting processes were conducted correctly, placement of patients and barriers guaranteed the safest in-flight protection of aircrew, movement procedures for patients were correct, aircraft configuration was appropriate, and proper procedures allowed the fastest and safest turnaround time for getting the C-130J ready for the next mission.
