    Maintainers remove aircraft ‘tail’ for first time

    02.15.2017 | Story by Master Sgt. Michael Crane
    Master Sgt. Brian Gregory was performing a routine maintenance check on a C-130 Hercules aircraft recently, when he noticed a small crack underneath the vertical stabilizer. The crack was on a metal support structure on which the stabilizer, or tail, rests. In order to fix the crack, the entire tail of the aircraft would have to be removed.
