Senior Airman Garrett Hampton, 437 Aerial Port Squadron freight loading supervisor, guides a team of Airmen and representatives from General Dynamics and Sikorsky Aircraft as they load the final shipment of Seahawk S-70B (SH-16 in Brazilian service) onto a C-17 Aug. 8. The shipment, included two SH16s and associated parts and was worth more than $100 million. These helicopters were the last of six being shipped as part of the modernization of the Brazilian helicopter fleet. A team of several Brazilian helicopter pilots who were in Maryland receiving training on how to operate their newest aircraft traveled to Charleston to oversee the shipment. Doing so allowed them to meet with the team that made this delivery possible. “I really enjoy loading things like that,” said Hampton. “We rarely get to see who it is we are loading cargo for, so opportunities like that are fun.” (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
