Blended Operational Lightning Technicians
Senior Airman Devon Charmichael, a Low-Observable technician, prepares to launch an F-35A Jan 31, 2018, at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. Launching aircraft is historically done by the crew chief, but 388th FW maintainers participating in the Blended Operational Lightning Technicians, or BOLTs, program are learning other maintainer responsibilities in an effort to create a smaller maintenance footprint.
