MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. - Seth McAnally, 582nd Helicopter Group aircrew flight equipment technician, refills survival egress air bottles with oxygen at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, Aug. 3, 2023. The SEA bottles are filled with enough oxygen for several breaths underwater, which provides UH-1N aircrew time to safely egress in the event of a water crash. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
