Fuel: Lifeblood of aircraft

Airmen from the 19th Maintenance Squadron Fuels Flight enter a C-130J fuel tank Aug. 8, 2017, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark. Three Airmen are required to perform maintenance on the fuel tanks at all times. Their positions are: the attendant, the entrant and the runner. The entrant is in charge of maintenance, the attendant is responsible for overseeing the well-being of the entrant during the process and the runner gathers tools. The entrant checks for leaks and parts that aren’t operating properly and makes repairs. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kevin Sommer Giron)
