If you know what a ‘Thrust Conversion Actuator’ is, and how to fix it on-the-spot, then you just might be a C-17 Engine Mechanic!

Aircraft Maintenance Airmen from the Hawaii Air National Guard and the 15th Wing work side-by-side on these total-force airframes to ensure the airlift mission is always operational. 

Each engine can produce more than 40,000 pounds of thrust, enabling JBPH-H’s Globemaster III fleet to deliver precious cargo all over the world within a moment’s notice.

 These aircraft have responded to all kinds of war-time scenarios, aeromedical evacuation missions and disaster-relief events, and it’s all thanks to the hard work of remarkable maintenance Airmen.
