U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Thomas Cadwell, an air-crew flight equipment technician assigned to the 509th Operations Support Squadron, inspects a four-line re-lease at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., Aug. 21, 2017. The four-line release is used after the pilot has ejected and needs to steer the parachute to keep it from landing in an unsafe area. Inspection to perfection
At any given moment a pilot may need to eject from an aircraft. The Airmen of the 509th Operations Support Squadron (OSS) inspect and pack parachutes that could save a pilot’s life. These Airmen have an important job requiring them to look at every piece of the parachute before it is packed and ready to go.
