403rd conducts training exercise

BILOXI, Miss. – All of Keesler Air Force Base’s C-130J and WC-130J aircraft were up in the air simultaneously Saturday as part of the 403rd Wing's training exercise called Operation Surge Capacity. The combat readiness exercise was one of the largest the 403rd Wing has conducted in years. Hundreds of airmen in the 403rd Wing took part in this massive training exercise, created to test multiple capabilities in the wing and help ensure readiness in future missions. The three-hour training exercise included dropping 15 pound sandbags to simulate a tactical air drop. (Source: WLOX-TV, 04/05/14)
