Forging fleet of tomorrow at 2,000 degrees


U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Jacob Fernholz, 19th Maintenance Squadron Aircraft Metals Technology journeyman, welds an aircraft component April 11 at Little Rock Air Force Base. Metals tech Airmen weld everything from aircraft components to flight line support equipment. The Airmen can mass produce 100 to 200 aircraft parts at a time, reducing wait times for aircraft parts by more than half. In addition to ensuring aircraft parts are built with the finest metal possible, the shop saves aircraft maintainers time. On average, the shop can mass produce a part in two to three days.
