US, ROK forecasters nail weather

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Ivan Cooper, right, and Republic of Korea Air Force 1st Lt. Jaewon Yoo with the Osan Weather Squadron, left, discuss the day’s weather before preparing their combined slides and briefing for the general during Key Resolve at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, March 20, 2017. Weather forecasts are critical as countless factors can contribute to the outcome of a mission. Weather specialists keep a constant watch over the forecast and conditions that can affect the safety of pilots and aircrew. These experts utilize the latest technology to predict weather patterns, prepare forecasts and communicate weather information to commanders and pilots so that every mission goes as planned. Cooper is with the 15th Operations Support Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
