Maintainers complete first aircraft generation exercise

Tech. Sgt. Jonathon Fiore, a crew chief assigned to the 103rd Maintenance Group directs aircrew members aboard a C-130H Hercules aircraft assigned to the 103rd Airlift Wing as the aircraft begins to taxi just before takeoff. Maintainers configured the aircraft, along with another, as part of the unit’s first C-130H engine generation exercise, Nov. 1, 2014 at Bradley Air National Guard Base, East Granby, Conn. The mission for the aircraft may involve transporting passengers, cargo, a combination of both, or flying through hostile territory. Depending on the mission, the generation may include aircraft inspections and servicing, seating for passengers, cargo configuration, and loading armor or chaff flare, said Master Sgt. Jonas Concepcion, production superintendent for the 103rd Maintenance Group. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Maj. Bryon M. Turner)
