18th CES barrier maintenance keeps aircraft safe
Takehara Yasuhide, 18th Civil Engineer Squadron barrier maintenance technician, prepares rubber donuts attached to an aircraft arresting cable for cutting on the Kadena Air Base flightline, Sept. 21, 2021. The donuts wear out over time and must be replaced to ensure the cable is evenly elevated across the flightline, allowing aircraft to get assistance decelerating should they need it.
