Cloudy Vision
Senior Airman James Dziedzina uses a tactical cloud laser range finder Nov. 13 to determine if the clouds are too low for aircraft to safely take off and land. This is one of many pieces of equipment that help provide direct force-enhancement support to the wing. Dziedzina is a weather forecaster with the 48th Operation Support Squadron at RAF Lakenheath, England. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman Basic Stacey Jeanpaul)
