100th MXS train for mission success
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Donavan Jerles, left, 100th Maintenance Squadron Aircraft Structural apprentice from Gulf Shores, Ala., places tape on part of a flap while U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Maegen Correll, 100th MXS Aircraft Structural apprentice, checks technical orders June 3, 2015, on RAF Mildenhall, England. Flaps are devices used to alter the lift characteristics of a wing and are mounted on the trailing edges of the wings of a fixed-wing aircraft to reduce the speed at which the aircraft can be safely flown and to increase the angle of descent for landing. They shorten takeoff and landing distances. (U.S. Air Force photo by Gina Randall/Released)
