Maintainers armor C-130 with new system

Master Sgt. Ed Shaffer, an aircraft maintenance craftsman with the 910th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, secures safety wire under the nose of a C-130 Hercules aircraft here, Nov. 6, 2014. The safety wiring was attached as part of an armor plating system installation. Youngstown is the second base to receive a test version of the new system, designed for easier and more secure installation and better protection for aircrew members. (U.S. Air Force photo/Eric M.
