Airmen from the 332nd Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron remove a damaged verticle stabilizer from an A-10C Thunderbolt II at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq. A maintenance response team from the 332nd EMXG repaired the jet and got it back in the air less than five days after the jet suffered catastrophic engine failure and had to divert there.
