Yokota loadmasters conduct routine readiness training Feb. 26, 2024

Loadmasters assigned to the 36th Airlift Squadron conducted routine readiness training at Yokota Air Base, Japan, Feb. 22.


The loadmasters simulated personnel drops and completed an in-flight checklist to ensure simulated paratroopers were properly released from the aircraft. Additionally, the aircrew demonstrated the ability to perform combat offload method-A, a tactic employed for the quick unloading of aircraft cargo in austere environments where traditional pallet-moving equipment is unavailable.
