Aircraft 86- 0130 completed the Dorsal Longeron Repair and several members of the Shear Bearing Repair OFT have traveled to Dyess AFB and have begun the Dorsal Repair on Aircraft 85-0065. Currently, two 2 jets in work are 86-0134 AMARO designated aircraft and 86-0112 a combined Shr Brg Repair I Blk E Mod jet.
