BLACKSTONE, Va. - Virginia National Guard Airmen assigned to the Virginia Beach-based 203rd Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operational Repair Squadron Engineers, 192nd Wing conduct a runway overrun improvement project during their annual training June 5-30, 2023, at the Blackstone Army Airfield near Blackstone, Virginia. During the project, the RED HORSE removed the existing pavement of the overrun at the end of a runway, and reconstructed it with larger dimensions. The engineers then worked alongside a local paving company to lay asphalt on the rebuilt overrun. (U.S. National Guard photo by Mike Vrabel)
