Hydraulics Airmen enter the KC-135 "hellhole"

Staff Sgt. Logan Schiermeyer, 22nd Maintenance Squadron hydraulics systems craftsman, services a boom hoist gear box from a KC-135 Stratotanker during an isochronal inspection Dec. 2, 2020, at McConnell Air Force Base, Kansas. Specialized oil is replaced during the inspection, ensuring the gear box is able to support the operation of the boom hoist cable. The cable, connected to the boom hoist unit, lifts and lowers the boom during refueling operations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Alan Ricker)
