More Than Ready for Work

Maintainers at Tyndall AFB, Fla., have exceeded the mission capable rate for the F-22 Raptor and met the rate for the F-15 Eagles in their charge. Airmen of the 325th Maintenance Group produced a “remarkable feat,” said Robert Taylor, maintenance analysis chief of the Maintenance Operations Squadron, in reaching an MC rate of 65.4, besting the Raptor goal of 65. And, the group’s F-15 maintainers got the Eagles back “to full speed in minimal time” after the fleet-wide standdown, noted Lt. Col. Warren Benjamin, 325th Operations Group deputy commander. Tyndall serves as USAF’s primary F-22 and F-15 combat training base. (Tyndall report by A1C Veronica McMahon)
