At the Herc wash
Brig. Gen. Evan Dertien, 96th Test Wing commander, holds onto a ribbon he cut during the 96th Operations Group Detachment 1’s Large Aircraft Wash Rack ribbon cutting ceremony Dec. 14 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Prior to its establishment, C-130 test aircraft were ferried to other installations for monthly washes, impacting test time and funding. The local wash rack frees nearly six-months of test scheduling for the detachment and saves more than $1.14 million in fuel costs each year. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Jasmine Porterfield)
