445th helps with medical maggots experiment

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio - The 445th Airlift Wing was part of a medical experiment when one of its C-17 Globemaster III flew several hundred maggots to Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska and back. The purpose of the experiment was to assess the viability of live sterile fly larvae on a military aircraft to simulate the travel time between major global military medical facilities where the flight times can average anywhere from eight to 10 hours.
