07/06/2013: A Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System-equipped C-130 from the 153rd Airlift Wing, after following a U.S. Forest Service lead plane, performs a training mission which includes water drops near the Medicine Bow National Forest, May 10, 2013.

The Wyoming Air National Guard’s 153rd AW held its annual MAFFS certification and re-certification training.

When it is determined MAFFS is needed, the National Interagency Fire Center through U.S. Northern Command requests the Department of Defense’s U.S. Air Force resources.
