Weather Flight - Watching the Skies
Staff Sgt. Craig Cassell, 56th Operations Support Squadron weather flight shift supervisor, measures the wind speed June 15, 2021, at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. Measuring wind speed is just one way to ensure safe operations for both the F-35A Lightning II and the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft that fly at Luke AFB for training and real-world operations. By accurately forecasting weather patterns, the weather flight protects Air Force assets, resources and personnel, and fosters an effective training environment for the Air Education and Training Command.
