The Air Force has been ordered to get mission-capable rates for key fighter aircraft up to 80 percent — and that could be a heavy lift.
If you’re an F-16, F-22 or F-35 maintainer, we want to hear what you think that’s going to mean for you. Are you expecting longer hours or more weekend shifts? Does your squadron have the resources and manpower to hit 80 percent? Is that goal even achievable?
