Choosing to drink alcohol and drive not only risks lives, but also puts careers in jeopardy. If at all possible, avoid driving a vehicle anywhere there’s a chance that drink may be consumed. If there’s no alternative to getting to the destination where there is alcohol, make sensible choices beforehand. Airmen should put the number of a local cab company in their cell phones, and have a “Plan B” or “Plan C” if their initial plans fall through. Alternatively, call a friend, coworker or even first sergeant to come get you, or call Airmen Against Drunk Driving. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Senior Master Sgt.

A participant in the Military Track Day rides his motorcycle July 26, 2016, at Snetterton Circuit in Norwich, England. The closed circuit enabled riders to safely navigate the track without the risk of hitting vehicles pulling out, animals running in the road or pot holes. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Micaiah Anthony) Speed, Adrenaline: Airmen enjoy Military Track Day
Peering through a tinted visor, trees and grass transform into a mosaic blur as a sharp corner rapidly approaches. With a flick of the wrist the throttle rolls back and the exhaust erupts with a shrieking roar. Passing winds whip the rider forcing the pilot of the two wheeled beast to nestle closer to its cold shell. With a loosened grip the throttle snaps forward. The engine whines as the motorcycle slows, suddenly the horizon turns sideways. Inches from the passing tarmac the rider’s knee makes contact with asphalt. Many people ride motorcycles for different reasons. For some, it’s an affordable mode of transportation, some enjoy the scenery or the open road and others simply love the thrill of the ride. For 55 Airmen based across the U.K., they felt that thrill July 26, 2016, when they ventured out to the Snetterton Circuit in Norwich, England.
