Airman's innovation sparks excitement for Raptors
U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Daniel Caban, 1st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, secures a portion of the Portable Magnetic Aircraft Covers to an F-22 Raptor intake at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Oct. 23, 2019. Caban created Portable Magnetic Aircraft Covers, also known as PMAC, made of polymagnets and Nomex IIIA fibers that can be folded and packed into a small compartment on the aircraft, thus, eliminating the need for the current Dash 21 gear that requires separate shipping due to its size.
