Aerial herbicide operations enable safe training at Mountain Home

A C-130H Hercules aircraft assigned to the 757th Airlift Squadron sprays herbicide on Sept. 23, 2020, at Saylor Creek Training Range, Idaho. As a means of fire prevention, Reserve Citizen Airmen from Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, traveled to Mountain Home AFB to conduct aerial spray operations to combat the growth of cheatgrass, an invasive winter annual. During wildfires, cheatgrass acts as an enabler, causing the fire to spread quickly to other vegetation such as sagebrush. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Christina Russo)
