Alaska Air Guardsman Staff Sgt David Smith, a pneudraulic systems specialist, repairs a main landing gear brake for the HH-60 helicopter on April 14, 2010. Smith works for the Accessories Section of the 176th Maintenance Squadron, Kulis Air National Guard Base, Anchorage, Alaska. The repair of the brake falls under the Air Force Repair Enhancement Program (AFREP). AFREP is a wing-level program that takes throw-away parts and makes them good as new. Unserviceable aircraft parts are carefully scrutinized to see if there is a way to salvage them for less money than it costs to replace them. (Alaska Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt.
