Travis AFB bolsters USAF aeromedical evacuation capabilities amid COVID-19

A C-17 Globemaster III is parked on the Travis flight line April 27, 2020, at Travis Air Force Base, California. As of now, only the C-17, C-130H Hercules and C-130J Super Hercules are capable of carrying Transport Isolation System capsules. TIS capsules, which were initially engineered in response to the Ebola virus in 2014, allow the transport of individuals with highly contagious diseases without infecting any other passengers or aircrew on the aircraft.
