435th CRS helps sharpen civil engineer squadrons


U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Sean Fauss, 932nd Civil Engineer Squadron electrical power production technician, stretches out an electrical line on a mobile aircraft arresting system at Ramstein Air Base, March 10. The 435th Contingency Response Squadron instructors taught Airmen from various Air Force civil engineer units how to set up and break down mobile aircraft arresting systems on varying terrains. The training taught Airmen how to effectively build and use mobile aircraft arresting systems, which are used to rapidly decrease the speed of aircraft as they land.
