Egress: Last Chance for Life

HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- Staff Sgt. Mitchell Lawhorn, a 54th Maintenance Squadron egress systems craftsman, removes an aircraft panel before removing the canopy of an F-16 Fighting Falcon on March 13, 2017 at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M. Egress system specialists ensure that pilots can safely eject from aircraft in the event of an emergency. They perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on seats, hatches, canopies and modules to ensure pilots can safely eject if necessary. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Emily Kenney)
