Airfield systems specialists keep tankers flying

A localizer antenna array points down the runway July 14, 2015, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash. The localizer antenna array radiates a signal for aircraft up to 20 miles away directing aircraft along the correct travel path to be able to land down the center of the runway. Without these working correctly, the incoming aircraft would not know where to go or be able to land safely in inclement weather. The 92nd Operation Support Squadron airfield systems specialists balance today’s readiness with tomorrow’s modernization by ensuring all equipment on the airfield is up-to-date and working properly.
