Airmen’s Innovation Leads to MC-130J’s Equipped with Printed Parts
Staff Sgt. Matthew Farmer, 352d Special Operations Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Aerospace Propulsion Craftsman, outfits an MC-130J Commando II’s Color Multi-Purpose Display with a 3D printed cover on RAF Mildenhall, April 8, 2016. Farmer designed the covers to protect the $70k screens from damage occurring during routine maintenance. Farmer submitted his ideas through the Airmen Powered by Innovation program and was notified that both were approved with a plan to implement.
