The 35th Civil Engineer Squadron and Japan Air Self-Defense Force Airmen equivalent, work together to replace deteriorating high voltage overhead lines at Draughon Range in Misawa, Japan, July 15.


Preparing to replace power lines

Typically, high-voltage line replacement is a contracted project; however, the 35 CES electrical shop seized the opportunity for their Airmen to receive on-the-job training alongside their JASDF counterparts. Not only did U.S. and JASDF Airmen benefit from completing the project as a team but it also saved the Air Force 90,000 dollars. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie A. Bulow-Gonterman)
