Dreams take flight

Airman First Class Zac Sidders, of Peoria, and loadmaster on an Air National Guard C-130, describes his job to Air Force ROTC cadets Monday at the Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro. As loadmaster, Sidders is in charge of weight distrbution on the aircraft and said he can feel the breath being taken away from him when making drops at 1,000 feet. For many cadets, including upperclassman Cadet 1st Lt. Ryan May, this was his first time seeing an Air National Guard C-130 in person. “We know what to expect. We’re all in the ROTC but haven’t actually experienced it ourselves,” May said. “Hearing it from someone who has experienced it first hand, it takes a distant goal and makes it a reality.” Nicole Hester-Daily Egyptian
