Airmen 1st Class Rodney Stewart and Gage Berard, 923rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chiefs, replace a blade tip on a HH-60G Pave Hawk Oct. 8. The blade tips are replaced when they become damaged by weather when flying or when they become too worn.

Airman 1st Class Tyler Ritchie, 923rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, marshals a HH-60G Pave Hawk for take-off. Aircraft marshaling is mainly done using visual communication through body signals.
