Honing the blades

Alvaro Constancio, 47th Maintenance Directorate maintainer, sharpens the propeller of a T-6 Texan II on Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, April 12, 2017. 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. A “hangar queen” is an aircraft that hasn’t been flown in more than 30 days. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Benjamin N. Valmoja)
