Raptor bird bath: contract gives time back to the mission
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
The 1st Fighter Wing is responsible for one-third of the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Raptors and the Airmen of the 1st Maintenance Group are responsible for maintaining them. However, in order to keep the aircraft mission ready, they must be washed regularly, taking time away from maintainers’ primary duties.
