Members from the 355th Equipment Maintenance Squadron corrosion control and sheet metal flights are working to refurbish several aircraft at Heritage Park on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
“We are maintaining Heritage Park,” said Senior Airman Clint Black, 355th EMS aircraft structural maintenance. “We are making sure it is kept at a standard so people will come and see the aircraft.”
Members of the 355th EMS are making the final touches to the refurbishing of the A-10 Thunderbolt II this week.
“A typical A-10 takes seven days,” said Staff Sgt. Ray McMahon, 355th EMS day shift corrosion lead. “Since it is a one-shift operation and we’re doing it outside, we were given ten days to finish the A-10 at Heritage Park.”
Members of the 355th EMS will start re-beautifying the Lockheed U-2 next week. In April, they will return to Heritage Park to repaint the C-130.
“As Corrosion Control and Sheet Metal Flight, it’s our job to take care of the aircraft, which includes the aircraft at Heritage Park,” McMahon said.
