2016 Year in Review

Airman 1st Class Matthew, 15th Attack Squadron MQ-1 Predator sensor operator follows a moving target alongside an MQ-1 pilot during a training mission Dec. 5, 2016, at Creech Air Force Base, Nev. Despite the remotely piloted aircraft stigma that operators don’t feel anything when conducting weapons strikes, Matthew explained he felt nervous, cold, and his heart raced during his first weapons strike in support of ground forces.
