Lighting fast

Airman 1st Class Clint Walker, 307th Maintenance Squadron B-52 aircraft mechanic, holds a pin that connects the tail of the jet to its fuselage at Barksdale Air Force Base, La, Feb. 1, 2018. Walker was one of eight Airmen that replaced the tail on a B-52 Stratofortress that was damaged by lightning on its final approach to base. Such replacements are uncommon in the maintenance world and present a unique set of logistical and physical challenges. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Ted Daigle/released)
