1st Lt. Zachary Pruitt, 3rd Airlift Squadron pilot, and Capt. Corey Landis, 3rd AS pilot, fly a C-17 Globemaster III over Pennsylvania while wearing night vision goggles Jan. 28, 2021. In combat, flying at night without artificial light minimizes visibility of the aircraft and reduces threat from potential enemies. The 3rd AS routinely trains to support global engagement through direct delivery of time-critical theater deployment assets and ensure aircrew operational readiness. Night missions serve to ensure aircrew effectiveness and readiness in contested and challenging environments. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Faith Schaefer)
