Staff Sgt. Tyson Hageny, 379th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, attaches the Aircraft Arresting System cable to the Barrier Arresting Kit, known as the BAK-14, Oct. 9, 2016, at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. The BAK-14 raises and lowers the cable on the runway, and it works in conjunction with the BAK-12 system, which reels in and keeps tension on the cable. The systems work together to provide additional assistance during an emergency stop for aircraft taking off and landing on the runway. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Miles Wilson/Released)
