Ready to catch you
Airmen from the 18th Civil Engineer Squadron prepare to reel in a cable inside an aircraft barrier shack Aug. 16, 2016, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. During a training scenario, Airmen from the 18th CES simulated an aircraft landing on an aircraft barrier. After the aircraft was secured, the cable used to catch the aircraft needed to be pulled back into position to be used again. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Lynette M. Rolen)
