Phantom lift
Staff Sgt. Cody Walker, 39th Maintenance Squadron crew chief, inspects a sling attached to the landing gear of an F-4 Phantom II March 8, 2019, at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey. Airmen from the 39th MXS attached a rope to the aircraft to brace for the lift as part of an exercise to maintain proper training on how to lift a damaged aircraft in emergency situations. Using the decommissioned aircraft allows squadrons like the 39th MXS to sharpen and maintain their skillsets. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Matthew J. Wisher)
