Bearing shop

Almost everything that moves has a bearing, with sizes as small as a missile bearing that’s no bigger than a finger tip to an F108 engine bearing that weighs approximately 25 pounds and is 12 inches in diameter. Bearing Overhaul Shop supervisor Melvin Lovings said shop personnel take pride in producing a quality product. “It doesn’t matter how much an aircraft may cost,” said Mr. Lovings. “A $50 bearing can bring it down. A car bearing goes out, the driver can pull over. A pilot can’t.” (Air Force photo by Margo Wright)
