Airmen from the 366th Training Squadron electrical systems apprentice course prepare to “set” a power line pole as their instructor cleans an auger used to bore the hole at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, July 25, 2018. Because the average electric pole is about 40 feet, it must be put about 6 feet in the ground to be secure. To do this, students utilize a digger derrick, a large utility truck that is used as a hoist, crane, and auger to set utility poles. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Kevin Clites)
