305th AMW assists with Blackhawk upload

By Senior Airman Matt Porter 87th Air Base Wing

The U.S. Army 150th Aviation Regiment and 305th Air Mobility Wing jointly processed and uploaded multiple UH-60M Blackhawks for delivery to an austere location on May 6, 2022, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. The Black Hawk offers pilots seats that are protected with heavy armor, and an armored fuselage capable of withstanding hits from guns with up to 23mm shells. It can also operate safely in the majority of severe weather conditions due to its wide array of advanced avionics.
