Unique perspective for critical battery replacement

Staff Sgt. Jacob Pekelnicky and Tech. Sgt. Joseph Preston, 911th Maintenance Squadron avionics specialists, stand atop the fuselage of one of the unit’s equipped C-130 aircraft, while they replace a battery in the emergency locator transmitter June 19, 2013, at the Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station. The ELC battery is replaced every two years as part of technical order 1C-130A-6, which ensures that the transmitter will always send a signal to rescuers in the event of a mishap.
