Asbestos Exposure in the Air Force

Throughout the mid-20th century, the use of asbestos was widespread through the United States military. A key part of construction and manufacturing of military equipment, asbestos was a major component in many products used on an everyday basis within all branches of the military, including the Air Force.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may have grounds for legal action. To learn more, contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-781-3955.

Asbestos Exposure in Machines and on Base

From the founding of the Air Force in 1947, the military has treated this branch with especially high regard. As many have regarded air operations as some of the most important military actions in the modern era, the Air Force has received a great deal of funding over the past century. However, many installations and machines were constructed using asbestos as an integral component.

The following parts and devices may have been constructed using asbestos:

  • Aircraft engine gaskets
  • Pipes used in bases and other installations
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing and shingles
  • Fire-resistant suits

Air Force pilots are selected from a highly competitive recruitment environment in which only the most well-trained are given the opportunity to fly. However, in these conditions, the companies responsible for manufacturing these sources of asbestos exposure may have endangered the health and lives of these soldiers.
