U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Jacob Trimble, guidance and control technician, fastened a fall restraint system to the wing of a C-17 Globemaster III to suspend a training dummy from the wing in order to simulate an accidental fall during an exercise at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, June 6, 2017. The fall protection exercise was conducted by members of the 8th Expeditionary Air Mobility Squadron in support of Fall Protection Awareness Month and was designed to test the 8 EAMS’ fall protection rescue plan.
