Staff Sgt. Emmanuel Parras, 752nd Medical Squadron, readies his trapeze dismount during a Single Airmen trip to the Santa Monica Pier, March 28. The Trapeze School New York gave Airmen a glimpse of what it’s like to fly without a plane. Parras said it looked easy but requires strength. “I’m still a bit sore,” he said. While preparing to fly, you have to lean out and grab the trapeze bar, he said. “You really have to trust the person behind you!”
