    The nose of a VAQ-137 EA-18G Growler aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt, supportingOperation Inherent Resolve against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Interestingly, the aircraft sports a quite unique kill marking, showing a person “hit” by a lightning bolt. This is the kill mark applied when the Growler is used in an operation during which it jams cell comms or pick up cell comms and that person is targeted. All the other “standard” lighting bolts are for generic Electronic Attack support: usually, jamming during ops when F/A-18s are dropping ordnance.

    Here is exclusive footage showing how their technicians disassemble an entire U-2 spy plane for inspection. It’s a remarkable feat because every part of the plane gets inspected and repaired or replaced if necessary. That is, more than 40,000 rivets and 1,800 individual parts gets looked at and then gets reassembled for every 4,700 flight hours. This attention to detail is how the U-2 Dragon Lady manages to fly for decades without issues.

    The USAF’s biggest aircraft, the giant C-5 Galaxy, is not known for its reliability or ease of maintenance, although some of these concerns are being addressed with the new C-5M upgrade configuration. Still, these behemoths need a lot of TLC, and much of that work is done periodically at Dover Air Force Base’s Maintenance Squadron Isochronal (ISO) Maintenance Dock.
