100th MXS team takes corrective, preventive measures to ensure 100th ARW tankers stay fit-to-fly

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Spencer Wendrick, 100th Maintenance Squadron Repair and Reclamation aero repair craftsman, removes panel screws on the vertical stabilizer of a KC-135 Stratotanker at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, Feb. 24, 2023. The panel, at the bottom of the tail, was removed to enable the maintainers to access and replace rear vertical stabilizer pins due to a Time Compliance Technical Order inspection requirement. A detailed inspection was conducted here, and as a preventive measure, a team from 100th MXS immediately began replacing the affected pins found on some of RAF Mildenhall’s aircraft.
