The 446th Airlift ‘Rainier’ Wing provides 2,100 combat ready Citizen Airmen to support worldwide airlift operations. From humanitarian aid to aeromedical evacuation, members of the Rainier Wing operate the C-17 Globemaster III in some of the most austere places in the world, including the Antarctic.

These photos taken during 2016 offer a glimpse into what it is like to support those worldwide airlift operations.
