I've been in for 8 years and have worked on three different airframes. I worked on 15s originally, then A-10s, and now 16s.


Never been deployed, just been to Korea.

My Jets & Assignments

F-15 Eagle
Unit 57 EMS

I actually saw a F-15 balancing on only one wing jack and the nose jack. The left wing jack came unseated and the jet was just hovering above the jack. We do not know how it happened but it was scary for a few minutes. I also saw a crew chief make a jet pop a wheelie while doing strut servicing, funny thing is, it was QA that caused it.
