Aircraft to spacecraft, airfield ops lands them all

Robert Moore scans the runway for foreign objects from the control tower Feb. 2, 2015, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Though not as busy as aircraft-centric bases, the Vandenberg AFB airfield serves as a central hub for the delivery of components for the base’s primary space mission. Moore is a 30th Operations Support Squadron air traffic control specialist. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Ian Dudley)
