Sgt. Dave Gray, a crew chief from Dixmont, hooks a 4,000 pound block up to a UH-60 Black Hawk. He, and other members of 3rd Battalion, 142nd Aviation Regiment from the Maine Army National Guard rehearse sling-load operations to maintain mission-readiness. A sling-load involves attaching heavy equipment, such as a HMMWV to the aircraft for transport. The 142nd also trains for air assault missions, air movement operations, and response to state and local disasters. (Maine Army National Guard photo by Sgt.
