Airman 1st Class Caroline Kraus and Tech. Sgt. Carlos Sanchez remove the air cart hose after starting engines Dec. 30, during a B-52 Stratofortress launch at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Both are assigned to the 36th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Andersen and are deployed from Minot AFB, N.D.
