Weather Airmen support every sortie
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Joshua Tuckett, 18th Operations Support Squadron weather flight weather apprentice, holds an anemometer April 21, 2017, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. Manual devices such as the anemometer were used to measure wind speeds, but have since been replaced by automated systems that can provide instant data to forecasters.
