Top Capabilities

KC-135 Block 45 Modification: Block 45 updates the KC-135 flight deck by installing new liquid-crystal multi-function displays, radio altimeter, autopilot, digital flight director and computer updates.  This modification requires the deletion of 2K wires, 100 re-routes and the installation of 35 new wire bundles totaling over 8K feet of wire.  Additionally, 500 new single wires totaling almost 5K feet are installed.  This modification also includes upgrading the stab trim and aileron servos.

E-3 Dragon Modification: The Diminishing Manufacturing Sources Replacement of Avionics for Global Operations and Navigation (DRAGON) modification is the latest analog-to-digital flight deck mod/upgrade.

B-1 Lower Wing Trailing Edge Tab Bonded Doubler: The 567th AMXS in a collaborative effort with the B-1B Program Office, Boeing Engineering and Boeing Technical Services to utilize a unique bonded repair to reinstate structural reliability to the lower wing trailing edge. This collaborative repair requires extensive training in structural adhesive bonding of metals and reinforced plastics.

AMXG IMPACT Lab: The Innovative Manufacturing Processes and Aircraft Critical Tooling (IMPACT) Laboratory at Tinker AFB, develops high quality, safe, and efficient tools with lightning-fast results. The IMPACT Lab is available to 71 AMXG Engineers supporting six squadrons and seven airframes with the primary function focused on prototype support. Additionally, they focus on scanning, dimensional inspection, tooling, jigs, fixture design additive manufacturing, technical data development, sheet metal form block design, numerical control design, and engineering support. IMPACT has produced 250+ additively manufactured items for production specializing in reverse engineering and large volume printing capabilities. IMPACT’s future state will expand to different methods of additive manufacturing and reverse engineering by procuring additional equipment to expand our abilities such as composite printing with continuous fiber reinforcement, multi-filament printing, and large area printing.

B-52 Modernization: The 76th Aircraft Maintenance Group is well positioned to incorporate the more than 3 million hour B-52 modernization workload into the B-52 Programmed Depot Maintenance line beginning in Fiscal Year 2025.  The 76th AMXG is the only workforce experienced in B-52 PDM, thereby reducing duplicative work while maximizing concurrent work.

568th AMXS: The group is home to the 568th AMXS, the first Military Repair Station in Air Force history certified to work on commercial derivative aircraft. The KC-46 fleet is maintained utilizing the 2-year commercial maintenance cycle known as a C-Check that increases inspection frequency so structural failures are detected and corrected before they lead to major repairs.

KC-46 In-House Composite Repair Capability: The 568th AMXS in a collaborative effort with the KC-46 Program Office, Boeing Engineering and Boeing Technical Services, Non Destructive Inspection mechanics and 568th Subject Matter Experts to perform unplanned composite repairs. During C-Check inspection, the defect is noted. Military add-ons, like the Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) fairing, do not have an approved repair in the FAA approved KC-46 Structural Repair Manual so SMEs with Boeing and SPO engineering, work to develop a repeatable repair.
