Measure twice, cut once
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
Like an unsung hero, behind the scenes and out of sight the Metals Technology Flight at Joint Base Langley-Eustis performs basic and major aircraft structural damage repairs as well as manufacture tools to support the 1st Fighter Wing’s mission.
“Measure twice, cut once.” This is the moto each metal technician operates by, ensuring the precision of their craft meets the high standards required, as a simple mistake could cost a pilot or aircrew member their life.
