Youngstown launches 2018 aerial spray season at Utah range
Lt. Col. Donald Teig, a medical entomologist assigned to the 757th Airlift Squadron, makes a radio call during an aerial spray mission over the Utah Test and Training Range, March 8. The 910th Airlift Wing launched its 2018 spray season March 5-16, 2018 at the range, near Hill AFB, Utah, to eliminate Halogeton, an invasive weed species that poses a risk to Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) crews at the range. The 910th operates the Department of Defense’s (DOD) only large area fixed-wing aerial spray capability to control vegetation, disease-carrying insects, pest insects, and to disperse oil spills in large bodies of water.
