These stunning images show the day-to day lives of the brave men and women who work in the U.S. Air Force.

The pictures are a part of the 'Visuals of 2014' collection which have been collated by the official publication of the military service - the Airman Magazine.

Each one captures the men and women who dedicate their lives to protect and serve the public and show unique operations in the air and on the ground throughout America and abroad.

Highlights range from members of the Special Tactics Training Squadron jumping into a swimming pool with their hands and feet bound, to the Special Forces Group conducting a high-altitude, low-opening jump from a C-130J Super Hercules over Yakima Training Center in Washington.

It can also carry up to 16,000 pounds of mixed ordnance such as cluster bomb units, joint direct attack munitions and AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles
