Sharpening their talons: 9th MXG maintainers keep T-38s working
Matt Miller, T-38 aircraft mechanic, checks for cracks in a T-38 Talon’s exhaust during a post-flight inspection July 27, 2018, at Beale Air Force Base, California. The exhaust can form cracks from expansion and contraction due to repeated heating and cooling. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Tristan D. Viglianco)
