Brett Hansel (left), 36th AS C-130J Super Hercules pilots, test out sitting the pilot seats of a C-130J Super Hercules while wearing chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) aircrew protective suits during a Next Generation Aircrew Protection training at Yokota Air Base, Japan, March 30, 2023. The NGAP study focused on two main efforts to include how to purge contaminants in-flight via the ventilation system, and familiarization of new CBRN protective equipment such as the M-69 mask used by aircrews to improve visibility and comfort.
