18th OSS keeps aircraft safe during typhoon season

Shane Anderson, 18th Maintenance Group Air Force Engineering and Technical Services member, and Tech. Sgt. Hector Schunior, 961st Aircraft Maintenance Unit aircraft electrical and environmental technician, troubleshoot a generator of an E-3 Sentry Air Warning and Control System aircraft on Kadena Air Base, Japan, Oct. 24, 2013. During inclement weather, one of the two E-3 Sentry aircraft on island must be evacuated in order to protect the jet. The other AWACS aircraft is put in a hangar, unless the weather is forecasted to cause significant damage to the hangar, in which case the second aircraft will evacuate.
