Tech. Sgt. Daniel Caban, 1st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, secures his invention, Portable Magnetic Aircraft Covers, to an F-22 Raptor intake at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Oct. 23, 2019. PMAC is made of polymagnets and Nomex IIIA fibers that can be folded and packed into a small compartment on the aircraft, eliminating the need for the current Dash 21 gear that requires separate shipping due to its size.
