Aerospace Ground Equipment's many roles

Hanging high on the walls of the Aerospace Ground Equipment (AGE) shop at the New Jersey Air National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing, are two octopuses. This octopus, which was painted in the 1980s, holds different types of ground equipment in each tentacle. Senior Master Sgt. Frank Camillo, noncommissioned officer in charge of the 177th AGE shop, said they were painted to show how there is always work to be done and that it can take six arms to do everything.
