The incident that led to Miller’s death Friday is under investigation.
Miller was assigned to the 736th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. He was supporting Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.
WMUR-TV reports that Col. Joel Safranek, the commander of the 436th Airlift Wing, says the wing “extends its deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Miller family, friends and fellow airmen.”
Miller was a crew-chief for a C-17 Globemaster transport plane.
