Iraqi airmen keep fleet soaring

An Iraqi airman reviews technical orders with Master Sgt. Robbie Leist June 7 at Kirkuk Air Base, Iraq. While Iraqi air force pilots continue flying sorties to aid stability in their nation, Iraqi maintainers on the ground have recently achieved important benchmarks to keep their fleet in the air. Airmen with the Iraqi air forces' 3rd Squadron took over a wide variety of maintenance duties on the unit's Cessna intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance fleet, a task formerly performed by U.S. contractors. Sergeant Leist is with the 870th Expeditionary Air Advisory Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Eric Schloeffel)
