Anchoring points, key pieces of the recently built high power run up system, sit attached to the HPRU system on the flight line at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., May 2, 2017. Heavy equipment operators and expeditionary airfield Marines assigned to Marine Wing Support Squadron 274, Marine Aircraft Group 14, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing worked to construct the system together. The HPRU system is used to test aircraft engines before flight by securing them to the ground on anchoring points and running the engine at full power to ensure they can operate at full capacity and complete the mission safely.
