By Master Sgt. Kristian Carter 433rd Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Twenty-nine students and faculty members from the Inter-American Air Forces Academy toured an Air Force Reserve Command C-5M Super Galaxy belonging to the 433rd Airlift Wing at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Oct. 30.

The group included officer and enlisted maintenance and aircrew members.

These tours provide an opportunity for the students to see aircraft in person and learn more about these weapons systems.

“I’m extremely happy to be here,” said Colombian army Maj. Rubén Llamas, aircraft maintenance officer. “This helps me to visualize in real life everything the instructors are teaching in the simulator.”

The academy provides military education and training to personnel from other partner nations.
