Constancio is part of the maintenance crew that restored Laughlin’s hangar queens, fixing nearly all 38 on Laughlin in a year and a half.

In January, 2016, there were 38 T-6 aircraft that hadn’t seen the skies in more than 30 days on Laughlin Air Force Base. Those 38 aircraft categorized as “hangar queens.” Eight of those 38 aircraft haven’t flown in over three years, with one nearing five years being non-mission capable. In a year and a half, Laughlin has cut that number down to the lowest number of T-6 hangar queens in any of Air Education and Training Command’s wings with only one downed aircraft – and it’s thanks to Team XL’s maintainers.

Default Air Force Logo Aircrew Flight Equipment saves lives, keeps pilots flying
For the men and women of Laughlin Air Force Base who specialize in the mechanical repair of our aircraft’s parachutes, suits and oxygen delivery systems, ‘life-saving’ is not a buzzword in an instruction manual or a pronoun used to label a piece of equipment. For them, the Laughlin Aircrew Flight Equipment shop, life-saving is their job, their sense of pride, and their great accomplishment every time a pilot completes a sortie unharmed. ‘life-saving’ is a mission that extends not only to Laughlin’s pilots, but pilots across our entire Air Force.
