U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Curtis Campbell, the bird aircraft strike coordinator with the 35th Fighter Wing, prepares to shoot a cracker round into the sky at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 15, 2016. Crackers are the first line of defense to scare birds away from the airspace, as they pose one of the most serious threats to aircraft safety on take off and landing, but if they refuse to leave, they are shot at with a birdshot round.
