Fast rope

Special operations forces practice fast roping from an MH-53 Pave Low of the 20th Special Operations Squadron at Hurlburt Field Fla. Air Force Special Operations Command dominated the 2006 Air Force safety award program, garnering the service?s top awards for best major command safety record, most effective MAJCOM-level flight safety program and best ground safety program. AFSOC officials said the awards were particularly significant because of the command?s challenging mission, requiring extensive low-level, night and all-weather flying.
