Jason Burnham, 37th Airlift Squadron mobility noncommissioned officer in charge and C-130J loadmaster, finish setting up ion distribution units aboard a C-130J Super Hercules aircraft at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, April 30, 2020. As part of an 86th Airlift Wing training for simulated coronavirus disease 2019 patient transfer in an open-air environment on a C-130J, aircraft disinfection procedures were the final step before mission completion. Prior to a complete wipe-down of the aircraft with disinfectant, ion distribution units are used to address the airborne threat of pathogens like COVID-19 in the overall decontamination process.
