Hill Air Force Base — Sometimes there are things outside the scope of one’s duties that could, and probably should be addressed, but often times those ancillary items aren’t squared away — rarely though, do those things hold a $125 million price tag. Staff Sgt. Ken Reber, a crew chief with the 388th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, did just that — he identified a missing outer lock ring while inspecting a main landing gear tire on an F-16 Fighting Falcon, an item not specifically called out in his technical data to be inspected. Without the ring, the wheel has the potential to separate. “Staff Sergeant Reber’s attention to detail and technical ability averted potential tire failure on landing, preventing the loss of five combat aircraft valued at $125 million,” said Maj. Jason Moore, commander of the 388th AMXS. After his discovery, Reber immediately inspected all available tires on the tech support section tire rack and discovered four more tires were also missing the outer lock ring.

Did you know that each year, more than 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs? You may be asking yourself “Why are there so many dog bites?” When you consider that an estimated 70 million dogs currently reside in U.S. households, it’s not surprising to hear that so many bites are occurring.
