721st APS design saves money, time through innovation

Unused forklift tines, a sheet of diamond-plated metal and one yard of steel hose.

The list of spare parts technician Thomas Geibel read did not seem like much to modify a standard dolly, but it would save Ramstein Air Base's 721st Aerial Port Squadron in at least three ways: time, money and health.

This modified deck, dubbed the "Donnelly Loader," was an idea hatched by Senior Master Sgt. Wayne Donnelly, 721st APS superintendent, as a means of replacing the method of loading and unloading baggage from airframes manually. The system involves moving bins full of baggage down a series of loaders and dollies. As soon as Donnelly obtained the idea he went straight to Guibel to build the machine.

A thin sliver of light shone through the break between two heavy, dark curtains. No one saw, no one noticed the slight, almost imperceptible, movement of fabric.

Everyone's attention was focused at the base of the stage where Col. Douglas Mellars, 422nd Air Base Group commander, was briefing Airmen on changing the leadership culture on RAF Croughton, United Kingdom.

Behind the curtain, an eye peered out - scanning the crowd and silently waiting.
