To our way of thinking this is a job that requires a lot of skill, flexibility and confidence–  that the aircraft is secure and can’t be fired up. Exhibiting all those traits here is Senior Airman Nate Hall as he conducts a post-flight inspection on a U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan.

Hall is an aircraft maintainer assigned to the 451st Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. He’s inspecting the aircraft for leaks, cracks or anything that may jeopardize its integrity.

EDITOR’S NOTE

We apologize for the delayed posting of this week’s Friday Foto until today. Technical difficulties (network problems) foiled our attempts to file it from Aspen, Colorado until this morning.
