Night Vision Training Comes to Ohio

The Air Force Reserve Command C-130 unit based at Youngstown ARS, Ohio, got the OK to install infrared lights on two runways at the Youngstown-Warren Airport, which will enable the airmen of the 910th Airlift Wing to train using night vision goggles—a much-needed experience for operations in Southwest Asia. Wing officials told The Vindicator newspaper that no other AFRC unit has this training capability. So far, the new training tool has brought in units—Air National Guard and AFRC—from elsewhere in Ohio and New York and Pennsylvania.
