A maintainer with the 388th Fighter Wing out of Hill Air Force Base, Utah, checks for structural damages on an F-35A Lightning II during Red Flag 17-1 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Jan. 25, 2017. For most non-structural and all structural repairs, low observability aircraft structure technicians must either fix the paneling damage or remove paneling for maintainers to repair other issues.
