Air Guard Lights Up the Lake

NIAGRA FALLS--A C-130 flown by members of the New York Air National Guard’s 107th Airlift Wing lights up the sky over Lake Ontario as it drops flares during training on Sept. 25. The flares are designed to decoy a heat-seeking missile away from the aircraft. Approaching the restricted airspace over the lake reserved for military use, the navigator readied the defensive systems, the Loadmasters pulled the safety pins, and the pilots positioned the aircraft in the proper formation position. Once in the area, the aircrew dispensed their flares in reaction to simulated threats, lighting up the skies over Lake Ontario.
