An AFMS look back at May 2020
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Andrea Ford, 313th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron bio-environmental engineer, decontaminates a Transport Isolation System on a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft after the transport of a potentially infectious patient to Ramstein Air Base, Germany, May 8, 2020. The mission marked the fourth mission and the 14th patient moved using the TIS since its first operational use on April 10. The TIS is an infectious disease containment unit designed to minimize contamination risk to aircrew and medical attendants, while allowing in-flight medical care for patients afflicted by disease such as COVID-19. Presently, Air Mobility Command has multiple TIS Force Packages on alert at Ramstein AB, Travis AFB, and Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, to support global requirements.
