Maintenance shop surprises four-star

The commander of Air Mobility Command, Gen. Raymond E. Johns Jr., shows his satisfaction and appreciation for what he sees with a surprised look on his face as Tech. Sgt. David Alsip (at right) and Senior Master Sgt. Rodney Rael (center) from the 433rd Maintenance Squadron explain the materials and technique their fabrication shop uses to create interior panels for C-5 Galaxy aircraft. General Johns toured the touted fabrication shop as part of his official visit to the 433rd Airlift Wing May 9, 2011 at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. "I'm very impressed with what you (the 433 MXS panel fabrication shop staff) are doing here (with the panels). I wish I had coins to give to everyone because this is outstanding work," said the four-star general after coining four of the shop's Airmen. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Luis Loza Gutierrez)
