MacDill AFB Photos


A 159th Fighter Wing pilot of an F-15C Eagle aircraft stationed in Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, New Orleans, La., tests a Mobile Aircraft Arresting System (MAAS) in preparation for the Tampa Bay AirFest 2018 at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., March 13, 2018. A MAAS is a self-contained, trailer-mounted Barrier Arresting Kit (BAK)-12, that accommodates rapid installation during contingencies. Testing the BAK-12 is required for all newly installed AAS before they are deemed in-service and operational for use. The BAK-12 acts as a necessary addition on the flightline as MacDill AFB is a critical air mobility hub. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Ashley Perdue)
