Sustaining the Complex, F-16 Relationship

J. C. Robinson (far right), 576th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, turns the wheel on a special jig to separate the fuselage on F-16D, 90-0783, on Aug. 03, 2017, at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The aircraft was involved in a bird strike and during its post-flight inspection the crew chief discovered the 243 bulkhead had a large crack. It was determined that the only possible way of repairing the airframe was to separate it into two sections. (U.S. Air Force photo by Alex R. Lloyd)
