HH-60 maintenance keeps aircraft flying

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Robert Yenick, 18th Equipment Maintenance Squadron structural maintenance journeyman, installs rivets onto the sliding cargo door track of an HH-60 Pave Hawk on Kadena Air Base, Japan, Sept. 3, 2014. The installation was done as part of a phase inspection, which involves taking the aircraft apart, identifying and repairing any damage, replacing any unserviceable parts and putting it back together again every 600 hours of flying time. Frequent phase inspections are necessary in environments like Kadena where aircraft frequently come in contact with damaging salt water. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Zade C.
