Officials with the 23rd Wing at Moody AFB, Ga., recently celebrated the opening of the new TF34 engine repair facility at the base. TF34s power the Air Force’s A-10 ground-attack aircraft. Per BRAC 2005, the Air Force relocated its TF34 intermediate maintenance work from Shaw AFB, S.C., to Moody. The repair center will support Moody’s A-10s as well as those at Eglin AFB, Fla. It is one of two TF-34 centralized intermediate repair facilities that the Air Force will now operate; the other is at Bradley ANGS, Conn. To mark the opening, Moody officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 16. Back in May, the last TF34 repaired at Shaw shipped out. (Moody report by A1C Nicholas Benroth)
