So You Think You Have Leg Room Issues?
Airmen, Sailors and contractors talk and manage dolphins while aboard a C-17 Globemaster III Nov. 8, 2009, en route to New Caledonia.
The crew is taking the Sailors and dolphins to Noumea, New Caledonia, where they will participate in Lagoon Minex 2009, which is a humanitarian project where U. S. Navy, French, Australian and New Zealand demolition crews will remove mines left over from World War II from the surrounding water of the area. The Airmen are from Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, the Sailors are from Navy Mobile Unit 1 from San Diego, and contractors are from the Navy Marine Mammals Program. (Defense Department photo/Tech.
