AFRC contract saves taxpayers millions

Jason O’Connor, a jet engine mechanic at the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) T-56 Centralized Repair Facility (CRF), bleeds air from the valve housing test stand before he begins testing, Dec. 1, 2016, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark. The test stand mimics real world operation of the propeller and allows for the testing of the valve housing. The CRF produces all Legacy C-130 engine and propeller overhaul repairs for AFRC, saving millions of taxpayer dollars each year by repairing certain items rather than replacing them.
