RAF MILDENHALL, England --
Firefighters from the 100th Civil Engineer Squadron, extinguished an aircraft fire as part of annual proficiency skill training for firefighters at their training burn pit on RAF Mildenhall, England, March 21, 2018. The Fire Emergency Service Training Program mandates aircraft live fire training for installations with a flightline to conduct a minimum of two live sessions per year for response personnel. All firefighters are required to conduct live-fire training at least twice a year to avoid skill fade and keep their qualifications current.
