When Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast and landed in Houston, Chief Master Sgt. Matt Proietti, 4th Combat Camera Squadron superintendent, at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, knew the distinct possibility existed that Citizen Airmen from his unit may be tasked to document rescue and recovery operations, and he was right. The Chief also knew that he was very likely to be recalled by his other “reserve unit,” the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and he was right again.

Citizen Airmen from the 701st Airlift Squadron set the bar high by flying the first C-17 low-level pass through the “Mach Loop” and captured another win for their static display at the Yeovilton International Air Day at Royal Naval Air Station, U.K. Friday and Saturday. This was the third year for the Reservists to attend the air show and it provided them an opportunity to train several pilots and crew on the task of flying their C-17 Globemaster III aircraft at low altitudes in what is known as the Mach-Loop. The Mach-Loop derives its namesake from the town that is situated at the circuit’s southernmost point, Machynlleth, Wales.
