Trevor Millette, 71st Rescue Squadron pilot, taxis an HC-130J Combat King II on the unimproved landing zone on Bemiss Field, July 29, 2016, at Grand Bay Bombing and Gunnery Range, Ga. This flight marked the first time an HC-130J landed at the ULZ on Bemiss Field, which was previously used for airdrops and helicopter landings. The landing validated the pilot’s training for future operations in austere locations and met requirements for training that cannot be accomplished on paved runways or assault strips.

Deployable landing system gives pilots global reach
Airmen with the 46th Test Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, worked for several months to learn the setup process and basic maintenance of the D-ILS system. Their efforts will help standardize the setup checklists all air traffic control systems Airmen will use assembling D-ILS units around the globe. Developed runways have permanent systems, but undeveloped runways sometimes have no electronic landing system capability. D-ILS provides instrument landing capabilities where they never existed, or where they have been degraded by enemy action or natural disasters. It facilitates humanitarian relief operations and supports the 24-hour, 365-day potential operational footprint of the U.S. Air Force.
