    Harnesses hang from a fence to preserve the moving parts from getting dirt in them on Jan. 17, 2019, at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. “Aerospace physiology gave me the baseline knowledge necessary to operate an aircraft in many different environments,” said Capt. Richard Gelles, 86th instructor pilot. “Understanding the various physiological events and how to recover from those events are critical towards keeping the aircraft and your crew safe. Aerospace Operational and Physiology Training Unit also conducted my initial altitude chamber training which helped me identify my hypoxia symptoms and how to recognize those symptoms in others.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Anne McCready)
