KC 135 Fly Table

Colin Tatham, the KC-135 acting electric/avionics unit chief with the 564th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, displays a “fly table,” which helps people in the 10th Flight Test Squadron who perform pre-flight testing to see if there are any problems with the KC-135’s auto-pilot function and is also being used on all other aircraft at Tinker Air Force Base. The fly table came to fruition through a joint effort by members of sheetmetal, quality assurance, engineering and transformation offices, as well as many others. Approximately $43,000 per flight is saved by using this simple innovation before an aircraft even takes off. (Air Force photo by Kelly White)
