HH-60 maintenance keeps aircraft flying

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Scott Okamoto, 33rd Helicopter Maintenance Unit crew chief, helps assemble the main transmission of an HH-60 Pave Hawk on Kadena Air Base, Japan, Sept. 3, 2014. The aircraft’s previous main transmission was found to be damaged during a phase inspection, requiring Airmen to assemble a new one. A phase inspection involves taking the aircraft apart, identifying and repairing any damage, replacing any unserviceable parts and putting it back together after every 600 hours of flying time.
