Airmen from the 703rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, de-ice a C-17 Globemaster III from the 517th Airlift Squadron Feb. 12 before a training mission. Heavy snow and weeks of sub-zero temperatures require extra effort from maintenance crews to keep the aircraft clear of ice and snow. The training mission included dropping airborne Soldiers from Fort Richardson, Alaska, and conducting air drops of training bundles that simulate the Soldiers' equipment.
