    Fairchild Airman invents mechanism for KC-135 to keep its landing gear doors from breaking

    Tuesday, November 20 2018 8:11 PM EST2018-11-21 01:11:12 GMT

    SPOKANE, Wash. - If there is anyone who knows their way around a KC-135 Stratotanker, it's Tech. Sgt. Shawn Roberge. Roberge is an Aircraft Structural Maintenance Section Chief; in other words, he fixes things. And since Roberge is constantly working on planes that were built in the 1950's, it's fair to say he stays busy. "The Air Force depends more and more on the 135's before the new tanker comes online," said Roberge.
