    A damaged C-17 Globemaster III elevator lays on a hangar floor at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, July 7, 2020. The damage was caused by a lightning strike mid-flight. Airmen from the 305th Maintenance Squadron, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, replaced the component utilizing the 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron’s facilities. The elevator is located at the tail of the aircraft and is used to control the aircraft’s pitch. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Devin Boyer)
