C-17 fire supression system

Derrick Chatmon, 562nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron aircraft mechanic, installs kick panels on the C-17 being modified with an on board fire suppression system. The system operates much like a controlled fire extinguisher, dispersing inert gas which prevents an aircraft from being engulfed in flames when it's hit during enemy engagement.
