For the first time in 15 years, maintainers at Robins AFB, Ga., are fitting an F-15E with a new rear half, announced Robins officials, May 13, 2011. In August 2010, during a training exercise near Shaw AFB, S.C., this Strike Eagle's left engine ingested a bird, which led to a major fire that severely damaged the aircraft. Here, Robins depot workers (left to right) Derek Seay, Dennis Pickett, and Richard Isom work on the replacement aft fuselage.
