U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Joshua Scruggs, 270th Air Traffic Control Squadron, digs a hole for the grounding system designed to protect the TRN-48 Tactical Air Navigation Aid from lighting strikes by conducting the tremendous amount of electrical energy into the earth and around vital components. The 270th ATCS controls the airspace for the 173rd Fighter Wing as well as civilian aircraft at Kingsley Field but also has an expeditionary tasking. This year’s annual training emphasized that capability and involved several exercises off base. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Jefferson Thompson/Released)
