Airmen Deliver De-ice Advice


U.S. airmen provided an assist to counterparts in Lithuania recently after that nation’s air force acquired a massive de-icing vehicle.

Airmen assigned to the 435th Contingency Response Support Squadron and 171st Air Refueling Wing spent five days giving classroom instruction and hands-on training to Lithuanian personnel on the Global ER-2875 de-icer, which is designed for clearing frozen precipitation off of large aircraft. 

The training and instruction covered vehicle safety, emergency procedures, technical specifications and maintenance, culminating with a road test.

“Without the in-depth training we provided, operating a truck that has the capability of reaching max heights of 78 feet can become unsafe very quickly,” said Air Force Tech. Sgt. Erik Silva, a 435th Contingency Response Support Squadron aircraft maintenance air advisor.
