I would do routine and specific case maintenance on a CH-53 E helicopter. Usually I did any metal fab and composite material repairs. As well as changing the tires and windows and doing any kind of required maintenance of the hydraulic systems. I used all manor of fork lifts and tow tractors along with high powered genys and a crane to perform different jobs on this aircraft.
