386th Air Expeditionary Wing Conducts RADR Exercise

Even in an era of cyber warfare, stealthy aircraft and robots, droids and drones, sometimes the key person in a crisis works with a shovel.

Senior Airman Zaldy Edjan is a water fuel systems maintenance technician with the  386th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron.  This strikingly stark photo, taken May 1, shows him shoveling dirt and debris kicked up by a wheel saw used to cut a concrete runway. Edjan was participating in rapid airfield damage recovery, or RADR, training at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait.

RADR training teaches Airmen how to rebuild a damaged runway after an attack in a short amount of time to get planes back in the air.
