SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany -- Airman 1st Class Justin Badord, 52nd Equipment Maintenance Squadron, fabricates an accumulator bracket out of sheet metal Jan. 21 in the aircraft structural maintenance shop. The ASM shop removes corrosion applies preventative procedures and ensures aircraft are structurally sound.  In the Air Force, 90 percent of all aircraft repairs must be hand-fabricated because the Air Force no longer makes the parts needed for repairs. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Nick Wilson)
