582 Missile Maintenance Squadron liquid engine rocket fuel mechanics, Kevin O’Donnell (left) and Jennifer McClellan, maintain their social distance while placing an F-107 turbofan engine into a shipping container on Apr. 28, 2020, at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The small engine is capable of producing 600 lbs. of thrust and is used in an AGM-86B Air Launched Cruise Missile. The engines are removed during MMXG depot maintenance and analytical condition inspections of the ALCM and are shipped to the Oklahoma Air Logistics Complex, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma for refurbishment. The AGM-86B is the “Air Launched Leg” of the Nuclear Triad. (U.S. Air Force photo by Alex R. Lloyd)
