Prepare, wash, recover: 317th AMXS improves wash program

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Timothy Neely, 317th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron C-130J Super Hercules crew chief, covers the propeller intake on a C-130 prior to a wash at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, July 12, 2018. When the C-130 is brought in for a wash, it is placed in a non-flying status which only occurs every 180 days or shorter, depending on the necessary maintenance needed for that specific aircraft. For Dyess, the average wash time from beginning to finish was approximately 48 hours before the new wash program was put into place. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Emily Copeland)
