Maintainers: Keeping the F-22 in the fight
JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Ak. —
When a car doesn’t run properly, it gets taken to a mechanic. When a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor needs a check, there isn’t time to send it to a shop. That’s where aircraft maintainers from the 1st Fighter Wing, 192nd Wing, and 1st Maintenance Squadron make their living.
