Latest Airman magazine available to download

  • Published
The May/June issue of Airman magazine is now available to download and viewable through a Web browser.

Our cover story, titled “Standing in the Door” tells the story of a brave group of U.S. Air Force Academy cadets who are members of the only parachuting training course where the students perform their first jump by themselves. Its purpose is to develop leadership traits through overcoming their own fears.

Another group of Academy cadets were busy competing in the 2014 NCAA Fencing Championships. Their story is told in this issue in a feature titled “Sabering the Moment,” where the Academy’s first female saber competitor captured All-American honors.

Also in this issue is “The Mighty War Wagon,” which showcases the durability of the KC-135 Stratotanker, and despite the fact its replacement is on the horizon, the 50-year-old aircraft still lives up to its nickname.
