Eddie "Lizzard" Moran USMC, an F/A-18 pilot on exchange to the USAF. The engine had just been reinstalled in the airframe after returning from a civilian contractor located in Texas. This was the second flight after the installation. The first flight was flown by a student on an instrument training sortie. A tool was left inside the shroud that protects the levers that control the variable compressor blades.
