By Master Sgt. Mindy Bloem 149th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

To keep the 149th Fighter Wing's F-16 Fighting Falcons airworthy, 149th Maintenance Squadron phase inspection team members perform detailed inspections from nose to tail of the aircraft at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas.

Repairing deficiencies can be as basic as inspecting screws on the airframe to as intensive as a complete landing gear swap.
