ALTUS AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. - A maintainer from the 97th Maintenance Group works on the landing gear strut of a KC-46A in order to remove the landing gear Oct. 8, 2019, at Altus Air Force Base, Okla. Following a routine flight, the ATeam noticed a main landing gear strut was leaking hydraulic fluid. The maintainers got straight to work and began to search for a solution. The A-Team would have to repack the strut to repair the leak, a task that had not been done before. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Breanna Klemm)
