Fixin’ a jet plane . . .
SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, GERMANY -- Senior Airman Jacquelynn Mathews, 52nd Component Maintenance Squadron propulsion journeyman, installs a low pressure turbine on engine 9574 for an F-16 here Tuesday. She’s helping to prep the engine for movement as a result of the Lean team’s redesigned/improved layout of the jet engine shop. The Lean Event, which began Monday, a week-long event, is a re-look (first one in the wing) at the engine production process which will build on and validate improvements made during the shop’s original Lean event which took place here in February 2006.
