Prepping aircraft for tornado exercise and formation flight

Master Sgt. Jeffery Dillon of the 166th Maintenance Squadron, Delaware Air National Guard, maintains instruments aboard a C-130 aircraft at the New Castle ANG Base, Del., April 10, 2015. The aircraft will be flown April 11 during Operation Cyclone, a Delaware National Guard joint training exercise when Airmen and Soldiers will respond to a simulated tornado that has swept through New Castle County. Army Black Hawk helicopters will evacuate simulated wounded personnel to the air base, with patients loaded onto C-130s for aerial evacuation. Separate from the exercise, on April 12, six C-130s will participate in the largest formation flown by the wing since departing for Southwest Asia in March 2003 to support Operation Iraqi Freedom.
