Blankenship, a C-17 Globemaster III pilot with the 183rd Airlift Squadron in Jackson, Mississippi, after she landed her aircraft to be put on display as apart of the Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air Show at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., May 16, 2019. The Blankenships have duty stations over 200 miles apart and rarely see each other in action. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman Jacob B. Wrightsman)
