Golden bolt keeps aircraft safe

Air Force Reserve Senior Master Sgt. Michael Birmingham, Quality Assurance Superintendent for the 910th Aircraft Maintenance Group, congratulates Senior Airman Brent Smith, a quality assurance technician for the 910th Aircraft Maintenance Group, for finding the golden bolt during the 910th Airlift Wing’s Foreign Object Damage (FOD) walk here, June 3, 2015. A FOD walk is done periodically on military installations to look for objects on the flight line that may damage aircraft. The golden bolt is placed on the flight line and the airman who finds it is usually rewarded. This encourages the airman to look more diligently for the foreign objects. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech.
