Twenty-five students from the Inter-American Air Force Academy visited the 433rd Airlift Wing Nov. 29, 2017 here. The students got an up close view of the C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft, by viewing the troop compartments and flight deck. The next stop saw the students visit the 433rd Maintenance Squadron's propulsion, fabrication, and sheet metal shop.

The class is made up of international logisticians, material management, and contracting students from Argentina, Columbia, Honduras, Peru, Chile. The purpose of the class is to build relationships and to strengthen partnerships through their education and training.

"Having a tour like this is important because it reinforces what we are teaching in class," said Master Sgt. Arturo Garcia, 837th Training Squadron instructor "The visualization of how these back shops work, really clicks with our students."
