Stands improve maintenance efficiency
Staff Sgt. Kevin Cheatham, 403rd Maintenance Squadron Isochronal inspection technician and support equipment manager at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi, shows one of the portable lights on the new maintenance platforms, commonly referred to as “stands,” April 29, 2016. The squadron recieved the new stands April 14, 2016. The previous stands became outdated, not meeting fall protection limits, and they were not configured all the way around the aircraft. The new stands are placed completely around the aircraft to include the nose and tail sections, provide more working area and access to power and lighting. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. Marnee A.C.
