Aerospace Ground Equipment: Out with the old, in with the new

In a recent storm the base’s B-47 Stratojet static display had its left wing ripped off during the quick, strong bursts of wind at McConnell Air Force Base, Kansas. Fortunately, the KC-46 Pegasus jacks are able to be used to repair the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Chris Thornbury)
