Dangerous and dirty – MacDill “Tank Divers” power the fight

Fuel cell access ports under the wing of a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft are used by 6th Maintenance Squadron aircraft fuel systems Airmen at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., May 30, 2018. The port, no larger than a shoebox, leads to the confined space where “Tank Divers” inspect the fuel cells and fuel bladders for corrosion, deterioration and foreign objects.
