FRIDAY FOTO (July 10, 2015)

Danger Zone.

U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sergeant Brittany E. Jones

U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sergeant Brittany E. Jones

We were struck by the otherworldly appearance of this photo. Reminds us of a hostile world in a science fiction movie — like the original Planet of the Apes. But this shows Air Force Technical Sergeant Matthew Bingaman, an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technician, returning from an improvised explosive device (IED) training scenario June 25, somewhere in Southwest Asia. The spaceman-like suit is meant to protect EOD techs from the bombs they are working to defuse and dispose of. Note the warning sign on the left side of the photo. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Bingaman is assigned to the 386th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron, a unit of the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing. A 16-year EOD veteran, Bingaman continually trains to safely handle live explosives.
