This lovely night shot shows the abdomen of the second largest military transport aircraft made in the United States. I can almost hear the C-17 Globemaster moaning—"I'm hungry!"—but what's actually going on in this photo?

A camera using a slow shutter speed captures the light from a flashlight Airmen from the 437th Operations Support Squadron use to inspect equipment inside a C-17 Globemaster III Feb. 9, 2015, at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. AFE works through the night to provide aircrew members with safe and reliable equipment, including night vision goggles, helmets, masks and even parachutes.
