Abstract:

This report summarizes our audit of Air Force aircraft corrosion control with emphasis on aircraft painting and paint removal. It is the final Air Force report in a series of reports that resulted from our DoD-wide Audit of Aircraft Paint Application and Removal Capabilities. Other reports resulting from audit discussed the repainting of the C-5 aircraft and construction of a plastic media blasting facility at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. The Air Force spends approximately 1 billion a year on its aircraft corrosion control program. Corrosion control costs include both corrosion repair and preventive corrosion maintenance.
