RAF ALCONBURY, United Kingdom - Col. Charles Hamilton, 422nd Air Base Group commander, accepts the 501st Combat Support Wing Innovator of the Year Award on behalf of the 422nd Air Base Squadron vehicle operations/maintenance section. The section compared the vehicle preventive maintenance inspection schedules in the Air Force Technical Order to the manufacturer's recommended schedules to determine a less costly method to maintain the government-owned vehicle fleet. Aligning the PMI schedule to the manufacturer's guidelines will save more than $154,000 during the first 30,000 miles of usage. Based on their findings, a case study is currently underway to evaluate changing the Air Force Technical Orders. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Chrissy Best)
