Staff Sgt. Matthew Farmer, 352d Special Operations Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Aerospace Propulsion Craftsman, poses beside an MC-130J Commando II on RAF Mildenhall, April 8, 2016. Sgt. Farmer designed two separate sets of protective covers for MC-130J components that he could create using a 3D printer at home. Both designs were accepted via the Airmen Powered by Innovation program and will be adopted Air Force wide. (U.S. Air Force photo by 1st Lt Chris Sullivan/Released)
