Airframe Marines ensure fine flight for Wolf Pack

A Marine ties safety wire to the hardware attached to a rod which fits into a CH-53E Super Stallion aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., Sept. 6. Safety wire is tied to all hardware inside Super Stallions, to tell if there has been a malfunction of the part and to keep small pieces, like bolts, from falling into the engine, causing damage and endangering lives.
