U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Joey R. Meininger, the 35th Fighter Wing command chief, lays in a “dunk tank” with an anti-exposure suit on during a Wild Weasel Walk-Through at Misawa Air Base, Japan, March 2, 2021. Aircrew flight equipment Airmen ensure these suits are airtight and waterproof to increase a pilot’s chances of survival if they must eject over water.
