71st AMU 3D prints new innovative tool

From left, Tech. Sgt. Derek Scott, 71st Aircraft Maintenance Unit CV-22 Osprey crew chief and Staff Sgt. Mark Birrenkott, 71st AMU CV-22 Osprey Avionics System craftsman, have been working on a new innovative tool at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., March 21, 2019. Scott came up with the idea and brought in Birrenkott as the subject matter expert in the area of the aircraft the tool would be responsible for cleaning. The tool is designed to clean out the Nacelle Heat Exchanger which basically keeps everything from overheating just like a radiator. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Kimberly Nagle)
