POWIDZ AIR BASE, Poland…[A]t Powidz Air Base, Airmen from the 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron were performing their own miracle. Diligently, they worked to ensure two C-130J Super Hercules aircraft were ready and able to take to the skies during a flying training deployment in the name of Operation Atlantic Resolve. Heralded as the United States’ continuing commitment to collective security of NATO allies, the operation allows America to host a broad range of training opportunities with Poland and the neighboring Baltic States.

“We are here supporting this bilateral training mission throughout the region,” said 2nd Lt. Su Johnson, 86th AMXS sortie support officer in charge. “Every maintainer here is committed to making sure our planes are ready to go and executable to our mission.”

Capable of carrying up to 44,000 pounds, or 64 paratroopers, the Super Hercules’ have been performing cargo and personnel drops in partnership with the U.S. Army and NATO. For the first time in her career, Johnson would be travelling with the C-130J crew and witnessing a jump training mission.
