Bird Bath

Aircraft assigned to the 403rd Wing's two flying squadrons now have a new purpose-built wash system designed specifically for the unit and its missions. In both airlift and weather reconnaissance missions, the 815th Airlift Squadron and 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, fly many hours over the Gulf of Mexico. Salt and moisture could lead to corrosion without a system for keeping the aircraft clean. The new wash blasts each J-model with 2,000 gallons of water per minute, emitting 150 pounds of pressure from each of its 40 nozzles.
