AMC Airmen conduct historic first aeromedical evacuation mission using Transport Isolation System

The aeromedical evacuation mission, REACH 725, marked the first operational use of the TIS since its development during the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and the first movement of COVID-19 positive patients aboard U.S. Air Force aircraft.
