Engineering flight leads the way

Three Airmen use an engineering tool outside.

Senior Airman Nicolas Florez, 407th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron engineering journeyman, explains to Col. Scott Gibson, 407th Air Expeditionary Group commander, how to use a ground penetrating radar system at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, Oct. 9, 2018. A ground penetrating radar system detects subsurface objects and is mainly used to locate utility lines before construction begins to prevent damage to the lines. The engineering flight gave Gibson hands-on training to gain a better understanding of the unit and their mission capabilities. (U.S Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Dana J. Cable)

Scott Gibson (left), 407th Air Expeditionary Group commander how to use a Trimble R8 receiver, which is used to retrieve signals from satellites to determine global positioning at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, Oct. 9, 2018. The newly acquired coordinates will be used to update base maps and keep the common installation picture up to date. (U.S Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Dana J. Cable)

Airmen from the 407th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron show Col. Scott Gibson, 407th Air Expeditionary Group commander, how to use a dynamic cone penetrometer, which is used to measure the ground’s resistance to penetration at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, Oct. 9, 2018. This tool is used to determine the ground’s resistance strength and what type of structures or surfaces can be places in that area. The engineering flight gave Gibson hands-on training to gain a better understanding of the unit and their mission capabilities. (U.S Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Dana J. Cable)
