A C-17 Globemaster III takes off from a degraded airfield Dec. 6, 2014, during the U.S. Air Force Weapons School's Joint Forcible Entry Exercise 14B at the Nevada Test and Training Range. JFEX exercises participants' ability to synchronize aircraft movements from geographically separated bases, command large formations of dissimilar aircraft in high-threat airspace, and tactically deliver and recover combat forces via air drops and combat landings on an unimproved landing strip. The C-17 is assigned to March Air Reserve Base, Calif. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman First Class Joshua Kleinholz)
