AUAB Fabrication Flight: fabricate to innovate
Staff Sgt. Blake Burleigh, 379th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron aircraft metals technology craftsman, molds pieces of metal to create a dual bracket connector clip Aug. 5, 2021, at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. The dual bracket connector clip is used to secure communication cord to an aircrew helmet. Prior to the creation of the clip, the cords would rub against a pilot’s face during flights and could potentially lead to dangerous situations due to the distraction while operating aircraft.
