133rd Maintenance Squadron
Published July 31, 2008
The 133rd Maintenance Squadron is responsible for overall management of field maintenance for eight C-130H3 aircraft used in tactical, airland, and airdrop missions. Supports in-place deployment combat operations on a worldwide basis in a compressed wartime generated tasking. During times of peace, the unit supports local flying requirements for upgrade proficiency and other training as well as MAJCOM directed deployments and airlift.
Aircraft Maintainers always travel with the aircraft. Since September 11, 2001, the 133rd Maintenance Group has supported Operation Deep Freeze in Antarctica where they assisted New York's 109th Airlift Wing with critical maintenance support for their mission with the National Science Foundation, Operation Iraqi Freedom in Kuwait, and Operation Joint Forge in Germany.
