18th CES barrier maintenance keeps aircraft safe
18th Civil Engineer Squadron Airmen and local nationals prepare a donut loader for use at the barrier maintenance building on Kadena Air Base, Japan, Sept. 21, 2021. Aircraft arresting cables rely on rubber donuts to elevate the cable a few inches off the flightline, allowing aircraft to hook it for assisted braking in the event of braking failure.
