Both pilots are students from the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center on Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. Both foreign pilots visited the “Alamo Wing” on Jan. 24 to learn about real-world C-5 Galaxy flying from actual C-5 pilots. The 68th Airlift Squadron is one of two flying squadrons assigned to the 433rd Airlift Wing, a C-5A equipped, Air Force Reserve unit also located on JBSA-Lackland.
