U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Michael Bonilla, 735th Air Mobility Squadron craftsman, salutes a C-17 from Travis Air Force Base, California as it departs the Hickam Field flight line in support of a Transport Isolation System operation at Joint Base Pearl-Harbor Hickam, Hawaii, July 17, 2020. Several U.S. Air Force units came together to rapidly deploy the bio-containment capability for the first time in the Indo-Pacific theater in support of a COVID-19 aeromedical evacuation mission. The TIS is an infectious disease containment unit designed to minimize contamination risk to aircrew and medical attendants, while allowing in-flight medical care for patients afflicted by a disease.
