Planes over water


Tech Sgt. Matthew Mong, a 45th Weather Squadron range weather forecaster, and Mike Boyer, a meteorological data specialist, attach a weather balloon to a “weatherbot” inside the weather balloon facility on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., Feb. 24, 2016. The remote-controlled robot releases balloons when lightning is present so forecasters can stay safely indoors. Data from the balloons, particularly wind speed and direction, help Airmen and mission partners decide either to launch or postpone a space mission. (U.S. Air Force photo/Sean Kimmons)
