The 314th Maintenance Group partners with the 19th MXG, 189th MXG and 913th Maintenance Squadron, that will be activating Sunday, in order to maintain the world’s largest training fleet of C-130 aircraft. These Airmen sustain the maintenance of more than 20 aircraft, ensuring they are mission ready. This Team Little Rock concept certifies that all C-130 aircraft are safe, functioning properly and ready to meet training and operational missions. The 314th AMXS sees everything from scrubbing down C-130 aircraft to pre-flight inspections. They partner with the 19th MXS to accomplish back shop maintenance such as hydraulics maintenance on C-130 brakes, aerospace ground equipment delivery and even rebuilding engines. Maintenance at Team Little Rock is a 24/7, 365-day operation, and with more than 1,800 C-130 students annually, maintenance within the formal training unit is vital to sustaining the future aircrews of combat airlift.

How the HAWC helps

Being an Airmen means more than being an expert at your job. All Airmen have the responsibility to be fit to fight, physically and mentally. Whether you need a physical boost to help pass your next PT test, are looking for nutritional guidance, or simply need to clear your mind, the 19th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Health and Wellness Center can help.

The evolution of the change of command

Military ceremonies have com-ponents that differentiate themselves from each other. Change of command ceremonies have specific, ritualistic components that show how authority is passed from one hand to another. The customs within change of command ceremonies have roots that have been modernized into the formal ceremonies that take place today.

Critical Days: Bike safety

Whether it’s to stay in shape, save money at the pump or simply enjoy a nice ride, a significant number of Team Little Rock’s Airmen ride bicycles. Whatever the reason, base Airmen and families need to have safety on their mind.
