419th Fighter Wing Photos

Strings attached

Personnel from the 419th Maintenance Squadron and 388th Equipment Maintenance Squadron prepare to attach a lifting sling to an F-16 aircraft at Hill Air Force Base, Utah on 2 July 2008. Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Mike Iarossi, 419th Maintenance Squadron, Flight Chief (wearing the white hard hat) instructed a two-day F-16 Crash Recovery training course to personnel in both maintenance units. This was the first time the two units had conducted crash recovery training as a joint team. The 419th Fighter Wing and the 388th Fighter Wing were the first reserve and active fighter wings to associate and share the same aircraft. Personnel from the two units also received assistance from the 75th Logistics Readiness Squadron crane crew to make the lift training possible. (U.S. Air Force photo/Sam Shore)
