Air Force Senior Airman Brian Radtka, 366th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, observes as Senior Airman Blake Pullen de-ices an F-15E Strike Eagle at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Dec. 18, 2013. Preventing a build-up of snow and ice on the wings and tail is crucial for safe takeoff, and without crew chiefs and de-icing, the Mountain Home AFB fleet could literally be grounded during frigid Idaho winter months.
