Making the flightline a 'no-fly' zone

Master Sgt. Andrew Van Houten, 455th Air Expeditionary Wing NCO in charge of flight safety, takes aim at a bird on the flightline on Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, April 18, 2013. Birds and the rodents they feed on pose a hazard to flying operations. The 455th AEW Safety Office mitigates this hazard through habitat management, harassment and sometimes lethal force.
