James,Allen, and all who are in an ears range. I want you to recall one project (to begin with) which, being crew chiefs and such I'm sure you will be formaliar with. The 428th got six F-111A'sccompanied with problems ( repairable ones), one being a 3x4 fiberglas panel on the wings, upper and lower sides inboard and aft of the glove door,(4 total). These panels were delaminating, and separating from the wing, if they detached from the wing as the wing passed through the wing seals,or before, they could have caused some very serious damage. I'll leave it here for now, if I'm not getting warm, there isn't any sense of me going on. Waiting for a response.
