NDI inspection
Airman 1st Class Robert Oviedo, 92nd Maintenance Squadron non-destructive inspection apprentice, uses ultrasonic equipment to determine the thickness of the metal after removing the corrosion at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, Feb. 7, 2018. With an older fleet of aircraft, there is the potential for more issues like corrosion. Performing the repair here saves an extended amount of time. If the aircraft was not able to be repaired on site, an Unscheduled Depot Level Maintenance request would be created to send the aircraft to the Tinker Air Force Base depot for repairs.
